The St. Louis Writers' Group presents a reading of the play Thoughts of Candy by Jim Danek Tuesday, November 7, at 6:30 pm. “Thoughts of Candy revolves around an 11-13 year old girl, Candy Kane, who lives with her father, Roger Burch and her grandfather, Joseph Kane. Candy has a school chum, Billy Major, also 11-13 years old. Candy has a very optimistic outlook on life most of the time. Billy Major is a wiz at school and many times will help Candy with her homework. Candy's father Roger is plagued by demons from the past, demons that won't let him think straight some days. Candy's mother, Marjorie Kane-Burch and the next door neighbor, Lillian Grant, also take part in the proceedings. Finally we will also meet Ramona Stevens who has her own demons to contend with.” The reading takes place upstairs at Big Daddy’s in Soulard.
