A public reading of Maine Playwrights Festival alum Arthur Boatin’s new play The Daughter of the Ruler of the Seas and Tides.

A solitary, middle-aged writer, visiting a small Maine town for the winter, tries to play Good Samaritan to a rebellious local teenager. Will she be helped or harmed?

This is the fourth and final installment in 2020-21 of Acorn’s bi-monthly reading series for full-length plays by Maine writers. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this season’s reading series is being streamed online rather than presented in person. Access to the online event is free, and donations will be accepted to help support the reading series.
