Shoreline-Lake Forest Park Arts Council presents the third play of its 2013 Readers Theater Series “Sometimes Love” by Zheng Wang on Monday, March 25, at 7 p.m., at the Shoreline Center Ballinger Room.

A witty, gay themed romantic dramedy set in present times, Sometimes Love tells the story of Cody and Dave, who have been dating for over a year.

Ask them how they first met, and they will tell you two different stories. That's not the only point they differ on.

Some days they seem perfect for each other, and other days they just can't seem to get along.

Will their relationship lead to eternal bliss, or will they end up going separate ways?

Told in an innovative, non-linear structure, this play explores and examines the difference between love and commitment.

Playwright, Zheng Wang, is an independent filmmaker and all-around creative person. His feature documentaries and short films have screened at over a dozen film festivals worldwide and won awards.

He also created and directed the original dance show series Dare To Dance, which has produced three successful installments.

As a playwright, Zheng has written two full-length plays, Double Happiness and Sometimes Love. His short play A New Dream was presented as part of the theatrical event Revealed! at Arts Crush 2012.

The 2013 Shoreline-LFP Readers' Theater Series opened its first two readings of the series in January and February with How to Kill a Cactus by T.L. Penberthy, and The Lake House by Elena Hartwell.

Zheng Wang’s Sometimes Love and La’Chris Jordan’s Roses in the Water will round out the series on March 25 and April 22 respectively.

All of the 2013 series readings are presented under the direction of theatre artist and local resident, Dominica Myers.

For many years, the series has served as a fantastic resource to bring together actors, readers, and playwrights in an entertaining and educational environment.

With a focus on presenting new plays, this program allows playwrights to learn about their own work by seeing and hearing it aloud for an audience, and provides a wonderful setting in which all participants, including the audience, experience opportunities to actively participate in helping to develop a new play.

Admission to the Readers' Theater is FREE and open to the public, and the playwright will be available for discussion following the reading.

All Readers' Theater events take place at 7 p.m., in the classroom wing at the south end of the Shoreline Center, 18560 1st Ave NE, Shoreline, unless otherwise posted.
