SALISBURY, MD, February 12, 2018 The Lower Shore Performing Arts Company will present HEAL - HOPE - LOVE, a celebration of healing through theater arts, on May 12, 2018 at The Ward Museum. The evening's special feature is a stage reading of recently relaunched Breathing Under Dirt, an award-winning play by Michael O'Leary. In a stage reading, audiences experience a dramatic reading of the work and become a unique part of the development process of the play. Special guests include the play's director, Larry Moss, http://larrymoss.org/, internationally acclaimed director, author, and acting coach to such renowned actors as Leonardo DiCaprio, Helen Hunt, and Hilary Swank.
Guests will experience the healing power of theater and the arts to transform, inspire and reenergize us toward healing, health and wholeness. Playwright Michael O'Leary said, "The LSPAC has been our home away from home as we have developed this play and we are overjoyed to return to the warmth and hospitality of Maryland's Eastern Shore. Ernest Hemingway really captured the essence of Breathing Under Dirt when he said "The world breaks everyone and some are stronger in their broken place". Breathing Under Dirt teaches us that the only path to restore our souls and truly live again is through forgiveness."

Breathing Under Dirt stage reading
Silent & live auction of cast curated memorabilia
