At obscure Belvedere College, President Harcourt faces a dilemma. A certain co-ed has been exposed as a porn film actress. Just as she’s about to be expelled, she wins a Rhodes scholarship.

Which way, Harry Harcourt?

His plays have been presented internationally, five through Ford Foundation development subsidies. He has been a proud union member of AEA, SAG and American Federation of Teachers and he founded and chaired two college Theatre Departments. He is married to playwright and Starlite Players producer, Jo Morello.

A panel will follow the 70-minute reading featuring Dr. Courtney Ruffner Grieneisen, SCF Professor, English and Literature, Jeff Grieneisen, SCF Asst. Professor of English, Ralph Wilson, co-founder, FSU chapter UnKoch My Campus and Rhanna Bazzini, 81-year-old political activist/hiker.
