Armory Square Playhouse presents staged readings of seven short plays at 1 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 12, at the Orange Line Theater at Jazz Central, 441 E. Washington St. All proceeds from ticket sales for "The Holiday Seven" will go to Friends of Dorothy Syracuse, a live-in hospice for people with AIDS. Last year, the effort raised more than $1,000.
