September 19

designA staged reading of Susan Rabin’s new comedy, JIVE, will be held Monday, September 19, 2016, 7:30 pm, at the Dragon Theatre in Redwood City, CA. JIVE follows the rocky journey of radio ‘shock-jock’ Chet Williams in his new job at a black music station in San Francisco. Chet struggles to resurrect his career after a controversial firing, and his love life after a divorce. Black deejay Noreen Roosevelt ably challenges Chet and his irreverent ‘jive talk.’ Reverend Preston Taylor battles sexual abuse allegations, threats from listeners, and K-JIVE changing its character. A live on-air political debate among the candidates for mayor goes out of control and strains the edges of political correctness. Secrets and surprises emerge as Chet and Noreen develop a connection and the story takes the audience on an outrageous ride.
