Playwright to appear at Kay on Saturday
Houston playwright Fernando Dovalina and actress Dolly Fischer, also from Houston, will take center-stage at Rockdale’s annual Tejas Festival at noon Saturday, courtesy of the Kay Theater.

The play, “The Opthalmologist’s Wife,” tells the story of a husband who panics after suffering sudden amnesia.
As his wife slowly and methodically tries to coax him back into the reality of their lives, they begin to rediscover each other.
Davolina will read the role of the husband and the wife will be read by Fischer, who is a favorite of Davolina’s and has had several parts written by him for her.
There is no charge for this event.
Admission will be on a first-come, first-served basis.
