Readers Theatre Repertory’s World Premiere Adaptation of
Dear Committee Members at Portland’s Fertile Ground Festival

Don’t miss the world premiere adaptation of Julie Schumacher's scathingly funny, best-selling novel Dear Committee Members, winner of the 2015 Thurber Prize for American Humor. Comprised entirely of hysterical, sometimes surprisingly hostile, letters of recommendation from the beleaguered and cantankerous Professor Jason T. Fitger, this “flawlessly written highwire act of a book” bursts onto the stage for the very first time. Wendy Wilcox directs David Berkson (who also wrote the adaptation) in the reading of this one-man show. Join us opening night, Friday, January 22, for a talkback and book signing with the novel’s author Julie Schumacher! (Cash or check only to purchase copies of the book for the author signing).

In addition to winning the 2015 Thurber Prize for American Humor, Dear Committee Members has received many other accolades, including New York Times Book Review’s Editors Choice, Winner of the Midwestern Booksellers Choice Award, and both NPR’s and The Boston Globe’s “Best Books of 2014.”
