Sarasota group presents readings of Williams plays

   You're not likely to find a better theater bargain than this.     
   Alleged Theatre Company is presenting readers-theater versions of four one-act plays by Tennessee Williams, arguably the greatest American playwright. And it's all free.
   The one-acts are "Portrait of a Madonna," "The Case of the Crushed Petunias,” "Mister Paradise" and "Wagons Full of Cotton." All four are directed by Cinda Goeken.
   It all gets going at 7 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 31, in the lobby of Players Theatre, 838 N. Tamiami Trail, Sarasota.
   It's free, but donations are welcomed. The donations will go to the Players Theatre.
   This is only the second offering from the Alleged Theatre Company, which specializes in readers-theater productions of significant plays. Their previous  presentation was Paula Vogel's "How I Learned to Drive," which, coincidentally, is on the schedule for Asolo Rep's 2013-14 season.
   For more information call 941-729-7448.
