Diana Howie says she wrote the musical My Small Pistola because she was interested in examining societys self-centeredness. The original Houston musical is about six jurors called to serve for a case about a shooting the prosecution says its premeditated, but the defense says it was an accident. While one juror takes her civic duty seriously, everyone else is just interested in getting home. The play is receiving its third rehearsed reading today at the Country Playhouse, and Howie looks forward to getting feedback from the audience. 7:30 p.m. 12802 Queensbury.
