A stunned couple struggles to deal with the impending loss of their only child. Could cryogenically freezing the child save it? An exhausted nurse may or may not come to the rescue in Cold, a three-woman work in progress by The Wilbury Group’s resident playwright Ben Jolivet. This staged reading is part of the theater’s New Works program, allowing the playwright to consider audience reactions before he moves forward with the final play. (This isn’t the last we’ll be hearing of Cold, in other words.) The reading is free, although donations at the door are happily accepted.
