In February 2009 FSCJ Dramaworks presented a Readers Theatre version of An Adult Evening of Shel Silverstein, ten brief pieces that welcome audiences to Silverstein’s darkly comic world, where nothing is as it seems and where the most innocent conversation can turn menacing in an instant. From a disagreement over the best name for a vaudeville act that escalates to murder to an incident of sexual harassment at a bus stop that doesn’t go quite the way the harasser planned, the skits explore the darker side of an author and cartoonist largely remembered for his children’s poetry collections.
