NSRTC presents a staged reading of "Wicked Bitter Beast(s)"
Zoey is a prodigal daughter on the run from her charismatic evangelical past which included being the daughter of a Hell House pastor. When her unforgiveness brews past boiling point, she is forced to reckon with the beast(s) within, and the ones looking back at her in the mirror. WICKED BITTER BEAST(s) is a latter-day morality play about (un)forgiveness that reverberates through time, space, and realms as Zoey keeps running from the charismatic evangelical Hell House she can't seem to escape.

Directed by Arlene Barnard. Actors: Susan Van Drie, Sandy Farrier, Jenna-Lee Motsis, Brad Ritchie, and Abby Seabrook.

Kira Rockwell (she/her) is a playwright from the heart of Texas.
