St. Davids, PA, September 14, 2012: Eastern University Theatre proudly presents a reading of Front Room, a new play by Richard Kalinoski, playwright in residence at University of Wisconsin, Oshkosh.

When a new and complicated romantic relationship begins for Sandra, Abbyâ€™s obsessions throw mother and daughter into a passionate battle for control and self-determination.
This reading features Betsy Morgan, professor emeritus of English at Eastern University as Abby. Landi Turner, associate professor of psychology, is Sandra; alumni Kaylee Goodwin as Alicia and Jake Miller as Tyler. Front Room is directed by Mark Hallen, director of theatre.
