Library’s Printed Page Players Performs Today
The Printed Page Players of the Tyler Public Library bring to life a classic play from the theater of the absurd from 2 to 5 p.m. today with a reading of "A Resounding Tinkle" by N.F. Simpson, according to an announcement from the library.
In the story, set in the suburban world of Mr. and Mrs. Paradocks, not only can the formation of a government be arranged via door-to-door inquiries, but the delivery of an elephant to their backyard is troublesome only because it is not the size they ordered.
"A Resounding Tinkle" has a wildly wandering plotline and is filled with memorable one-liners and non-sequiturs,
The audience comes to accept that the characters are living in a form of reality where the extraordinary and impossible are treated as perfectly rational everyday events.
The author's comic balance is recognized as a major influence on the early work of British comics such as Peter Cook,
Printed Page Players is the Library's continuing series of monthly play readings in the librry's Taylor Auditorium, 201 S. College. The public is invited to attend the free events, generally on the fourth Sunday of each month, and hear classic plays come to life.
