Peter Turchi presents That is Not to Say We Have No Regrets: A Reading, with Music
“This is Not to Say We Have No Regrets” is a one-night-only performance: a reading by Peter Turchi (The Girls Next Door, Maps of the Imagination) of excerpts from his novel in progress with music and sound design by his son, Reed Turchi.
In the fiction, a man learns his teenage son has begun having sex with a girl named Aura, and at the same time hears from a young college student who says she is his daughter, the product of a relationship with an old girlfriend. The combination simultaneously enlarges his family and threatens it.
“That is to Say We Have No Regrets” is about love and loss, about sex (and its consequences), and about intimacy and the unspeakable.
