Stages Repertory Theatre reading: Spark by Caridad Svich
Spark is about a family of sisters who live in North Carolina, one of whom is a returning veteran from a recent war. The work is being made available for local presentations during the month of November (and selected venues in October) in time for Veteran's Day and around the national US elections. The national script reading scheme has been developed to honor US war veterans, shed light on the plight of female veterans in particular and to raise increased awareness for their stories by NoPassport theatre alliance & press, an unincorporated collective dedicated to the advocacy, production and publication of works expressive of cross-cultural and aesthetic diversity in the arts.
The reading is in partnership with The Women's Center and De Bakey Veteran's Hospital, and will be directed by Eva Laporte. The reading cast will feature Timothy Eric Dickson, Florence Garvey, Michelle Ogletree, Brittny Bush and Wayne De Hart.
