Stories on Stage, a new series that features actors reading selections from recent editions of Barrelhouse magazine, returns to the DC Arts Center on Wednesday, November 14. The second episode focuses on men in dire straits.

In “After the Zombies” by Matt Willmott, a young man struggles from the after effects of an alleged zombie attack. In his attempt to move on, he begins a romantic relationship, all while suspecting an uprising of the undead.

The main character in Matt Bell’s “BeautyForever” tries to make ends meet by participating in experimental drug trials, one of which allows him to see only the beauty in all that surrounds him. The pill gives him a new lease on life until his wife becomes pregnant while under its influence.

  • So it’s about Mark Knopfler?

  • I don’t really need to see a gun for advertising – tawdry & lazy cliche at best. Genuine dystopia – will be far more interesting.

    • Yeah — I get that that particular magazine issue is focused on crime, but the gun image rubs me the wrong way.

    • Wow, you guys would go completely apoplectic if somebody dropped you off out in the country, where everybody has guns!

      • I think you might be missing the point.

        I can’t speak for Victoria, but I think “use of gun images in advertising” and “gun ownership” are two distinct (though perhaps related) issues. Perhaps many people who dislike one also dislike the other, but I’m not sure that’s really the issue here.
