THEATER | Spalding Gray's "Sex and Death to the Age 14" 

American actor and writer Spalding Gray was a master of the confessional monologue. That form of non-fiction narrative can be cathartic for the author, as well as the audience, in that we tend to find commonalities when we compare life notes.

On Sunday, January 12, at 7 p.m., to mark the 10th anniversary of Gray's death, a staged reading of Gray's "Sex and Death to the Age 14" will be offered by playwright-performer Justin Rielly at MuCCC (142 Atlantic Ave.). Gray's inaugural monologue is a humorous and moving recollection of growing up in a Christian Scientist family in Rhode Island. The retelling of personal history includes experiences of those twin pillars, sex and death, filtered through the lens of an adult who is recollecting a young teen's impressions of it all. Tickets cost $5 and can be purchased by calling 866-811-4111 or online at muccc.org.
