Trout Day by Johnny Culver “Join talented actors from Equity Library Theater as they present this new comedy by playwright Johnny Culver. Set on the first day of school in the mid-Seventies, join two old friends who reunite to stop a bizarre small-town tradition gone very awry. Clueless parents, talking ducks, an odd, overseas visitor and more!”
