*Glynn Turman, Loretta Devine and Art Evans are to take part in a staged reading of the award-winning play “The Dreamers” this weekend in Los Angeles.

The production, directed by Bill Duke, follows a poor African-American family in the south and begins the day that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. is assassinated.

“It is April 4, 1968. In the wake of Dr. King’s horrible assassination, the shameful ghosts of the past return to haunt a poor southern family, reopening the festering wounds that refuse to heal

Writer Christina Harley and sax-player Mark Allen Felton are also part of the reading, which takes place on Saturday (March 13) at 8 p.m. and Sunday (March 14) at 8 p.m. at the Screen Actors Guild Actors Foundation Theater (5757 Wilshire Blvd.)
