Puddin 'N Pete
By Cheryl L. West
Directed by Ernest Perry, Jr.
The Story: Puddin is an executive secretary with plans for a better future and a deep mistrust of men. Pete is a high school janitor with little education or guile but plenty of down-home, country wisdom. Each one has had failed marriages, but this middle-aged couple has put their bad experiences behind them, discovering what they have in common is their need for each other.
The Spotlight Reading series is made possible in part by a grant from The Joyce Foundation.
