WITS writer Elizabeth Keel, chosen by the Houston Press as one of the 100 Creatives of 2012, is excited to present a night of two new one-act plays as the 14 Pews Artist-In-Residence.

Performances of THE PSYCHIC PALACE and THE RAINBOW LANDS are April 25, 26, 27, 28 & 29, and May 2, 3, & 4.  Tickets are $10 for general public and $8 for 14 Pews members, seniors and students. Click here for more information.

THE PSYCHIC PALACE is a feisty romantic comedy about two psychics who struggle with knowing plenty about the future and not nearly enough about love.

THE RAINBOW LANDS is a charming family drama that summons the forgotten magic of childhood back into the present day lives of two sisters.

Come enjoy an evening of fun, happy, magical theatre!

Come hear WITS writer Ryler Dustin at 2 PM, Saturday, March 3, 2012 at Park Place Regional Library. Other featured poets include Hayan Charara, Marcell Murphy and Susan Wood.   As always, a WITS student writer will also read aloud a poem.  Don’t miss this last event in the Winter Series with Public Poetry, winner of the Best Reading Series 2011 by the Houston Press.  Afterwards, come meet the poets, select some books for signing, and enjoy some good Mexican food just down the street.

Here’s how to get to where it’s all happening. Park Place Regional Library, 8145 Park Place, 77017, is a stone’s throw from the intersection of I-45 and Loop 610. From 610, get on I-45 south. Traveling on I-45, take exit 39. (This is also an exit for Hobby Airport). On the south feeder, go under the freeway at the 2nd underpass (Broadway), and then turn right onto Park Place. The library is just one block from the freeway, on the left side of the street. There’s plenty of free parking, too.
