A Wednesday night forum brought in a packed house at the Warehouse Theatre in downtown Greenville. “Affording Greenville: Rights vs. Privileges” is the lead up forum to the theatre’s new play, Urinetown, that opens this weekend.

About 100 people showed up, to talk about the issue of Greenville’s growth, and the positive and negatives things that have come about with that.
