Enjoy the staged reading of “The Other Half” by Mark Cornell, winner of SETC’s 2019 Charles M. Getchell New Play Contest. An in-depth response session and critique immediately follows.

Synopsis: “The Other Half” is a love story. It centers around Michelle, a tough but damaged young woman, and her relationship to identical twins, one of whom she falls in love with. Set in the foothills of the Sierra Mountains in Placerville, California, the play tells its story jumping backwards and forwards over a six-year period.
