Kinnebrew, Meyer Continue Work on 'The Bachelors'

Evanstonians Rick Kinnebrew and Martha Meyer write plays for children as part of their work at Evanston Public Library.

They are also continuing to develop their screenplay, “The Bachelors.” The work in progress will undergo an enhanced reading in Chicago on May 29, and will be followed by a performance in the historic Mineral Point Opera House in Mineral Point, Wis., on June 2.

Based on a true story, “The Bachelors” introduces Bob Neal, a London interior decorator who returns to his failing Wisconsin hometown of Mineral Point in 1934 and hires a local man, Edgar Hellum, to help him restore a historic rock cottage. Their restoration anchors what has become a thriving artistic community in Mineral Point today.

The play is a humorous and touching look at a life two men spend together.

Tickets are $10 for the May 29 Chicago performance at 7 p.m. at Stage 773, 1225 West Belmont. Tickets can be purchased at or by calling 1-800-838-3006.

Proceeds will sponsor the June 2 reading produced by the Alley Stage on at the Mineral Point Opera House. Tickets for that performance are available by calling 608-987-3292 or visiting
