Bare Bones Presents 'The Pavilion'

Hello and welcome to the Thursday edition of "The Daily Five," a rundown of things to know or do in the community.

2. Book Club: Join Donna Diamond for a discussion of Empire Falls by Richard Russo. Copies of the book will be available at the Northport Library Circulation Desk. Northport Library at 2 p.m.

3. The Pavilion, by Craig Wright: This Pulitzer Prize-nominated play starts with an overview of the creation of the universe and ends with a "sweetheart dance" between two ex-lovers at their 20th high school reunion in tiny Pine City, Minnesota. It is a sad, funny and highly theatrical tale about love, loss, hope, and the fact that, like it or not, time moves in only one direction.   Playwright Craig Wright is a prolific, award-winning dramatist who has also written for Lost and Six Feet Under, for which he was nominated for an Emmy.  The Pavilion is directed by Jeff Bennett and produced by Eileen Harrington. 8 p.m. at Bare Bones Theater Company. $20
