Festival Reading #1: She Made Space by Meredith Dayna Levy
Directed by Lauren Brooke Ellis
Echo- Meredith Dayna Levy
Echo, a 20-something an American intellectual lesbian tourist arriving in Paris at the turn of the century, traces the steps she has taken toward an embrace of her whole self. This solo performance is a funny, honest and touching consideration of how one woman has come to occupy her own space by exploring the spaces created by other women in history: Sylvia Beach, Hilda Doolittle, Gertrude Stein, Djuna Barnes and Margaret Wise Brown.
About the Festival:
Each year, our New Works Advisory Board reads between 50 and 100 plays taken from the cumulative body of work of student playwrights who will be coming for the current summer session. These plays are ranked and vetted, and ten are selected for staged readings in collaboration with directors associated with our program--Certificate students, visiting faculty and guest artists.
These readings are presented free to the public, but there is limited seating. We also bring in more than a dozen guest responders who are active working theatre professionals from across the country. Many of our festival readings have gone on to be published, produced and won major awards. Come see tomorrow's stars today!
Our festival is presented in collaboration with Mill Mountain Theatre on their Waldron Stage.
