ONE IN TEN
Charlie, a happily married man with a decent job, has been able to get by in life with his ingenuity. His wife, Elsa, works longer hours and worries about time lost with their young daughter. While Elsa waits anxiously for news about Charlie’s job promotion—and more money—something frightful happens that no amount of ingenuity can cover up.
Andy Harrison’s one-act play is a mere snapshot of the many consequences of illiteracy. This local, aspiring playwright generously volunteered his time and talent for the project after being introduced to the pervasive problem by the Literacy Council of St. Petersburg. The play is a fundraiser for the Literacy Council of St. Petersburg and also a way to mark our 50th year of providing free tutors for adults with low literacy skills in our community.
The title reflects the number of adults nationwide who cannot read or write beyond a 3rd grade level.
