Before plays make it to a full production in a theater, they’re often performed as a staged reading in front of an audience. Tonight, the Purple Rose Theatre Company in Chelsea is hosting a staged reading here in Lansing at the Riverwalk Theatre.

The play is called “The Fisherman’s Wife,” it’s a fairytale-style story for adults written by Timothy Mason.
