The Hills by Meredith Dayna Levy (Festival Reading #8)
Directed by Lauren Brooke Ellis
In this 90 minute version of an epic tale charting the cosmically-fated conflict of humanity, we follow Eve through two reincarnations as she struggles to navigate the patriarchal world established by Adam. However, it is only through encounters with the chaos-bearer Lilith that she may learn the secret to usurping the status quo, and in doing so, transform her inner landscape and fully embrace her whole self.
EVE -- Betsy Quillen
ADAM -- Amile Wilson
LILITH -- Reilly Blevins

ABOUT THE FESTIVAL:
Each summer at the end of July, we present a three-day event showcasing readings of student work from the Playwrights Lab. These readings are minimally staged for the general public and close to a dozen theatre professionals as respondents from as far away as Los Angeles and from as close as right here in Roanoke.
These readings are presented free to the public, but there is limited seating. 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.
