Coming to Light, An Advent Progress
A New Comic Drama for the Holidays!

Several "Voices" share their thoughts and feelings in twenty-eight spoken-word songs as they look to make their way through early winter and the holiday season--that is, as they try to make more sense of their lives and the life around them.  They seek a true coming to light.

Influenced by Luigi Pirandello's "Six Characters in Search of an Author," Edgar Lee Masters' "Spoon River Anthology," poetry slams, and traditional Advent, "Coming to Light" (it follows) is innovative.  It's designed to be not only interactive, with audience on three sides and no fourth wall, but also immersive.  Members of the audience who are interested in taking part will be invited at different points to step on stage, take the place of one of the Voices, and read a song for that Voice, reflecting the poetry slam quality of the play.

Christmas will naturally be addressed in several songs, but the essence of the play is nonsectarian.  Non-Christian elements are incorporated, including the playing of klezmer music by Jim Armenti of the band Klezamir.  Some of Jim's own ballads are featured as well.

Please join us in our progress through the holiday season!
