Barnyard Theatre will present two more staged readings of “Pinky,” by David Templeton, on Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m. in the historic Schmeiser Barn, 35125 County Road 31, west of Davis.

After performing to a full house last Saturday, Barnyard Theatre is adding another evening to the run of its staged reading, “Pinky.” Audiences are encouraged to reserve seats to ensure their chance to see this delightfully sweet and funny play.

Based on true events, “Pinky” is a charmingly odd comedy about love, friendship and other role-playing games. When David meets Pinky, he is instantly smitten. Pinky joins his group of brainy, Tolkien-quoting friends, and reveals her own quest to find her “P.C.” — short for Prince Charming.

Determined to sweep Pinky off her feet, David enlists the help of their friends in a scheme to prove he is Pinky’s prince — a plan involving sword fights, treasure hunts and a battle against the forces of evil. As Pinky and David recount the tale, their separate memories morph into one outrageous story of young friendship and happily-ever-afters.

Director Maddy Ryen expands the two-person tale to include a hilarious ensemble cast of David’s misfit friends in the first production of “Pinky” since the playwright’s own debut performance.

More information about the production may be found at www.barnyardtheatre.org. There is a suggested donation of $10 for this staged reading, and reservations can be made by calling 530-794-8540 or emailing [email protected]
