    May20 My dear friend, Barbara, invited me to a play reading at the Roundabout Theatre Company. The play is by Greg Pierce and is entitled: The Decoys. the storyline has, as a base, the tale of the two escapees from a high-security prison some years ago. They engineered their exit with the help of electric tools supplied to them by a prison guard who was also the girl friend of one. I seem to remember that one died, somehow, shortly after the escape and the other recaptured. I do remember that the girl friend was arrested and charged. However,the main theme of the play seems to be the conflicted emotions of father and son. I found the reading, interupted by scene settings by the Director, somewhat rambling and difficult to follow. My short-term memory failed to reinforce my imagination.

Costume Design at El Barrio museum

Christine and I, together with Christine’s friend Eileen and her husband, Jim, went for lunch in The El Barrio Museum restaurant because the City Museum (next door) restaurant didn’t have the more substantial fare that our group required.

While we were sitting there, an artist was setting up giant puppets which will appear in a forthcoming parade.  He was putting together the top halves of three figures which will be animated by live operators perched on stilts. Click on the pictures for detail:
