"Writing plays is the way I connect with the world and follow ideas to their inevitable conclusion. Every play I write is a way to find out something about who or what I am and about the world I see around me—to find out if words can really ever 'get at what they are trying to say'."

Meet Annie - an outspoken, ridiculously talented, before her time woman, who found success on the 'stage' and who, despite her fame, most people don't really know about.
She is the epitome of surviving and thriving and her story is fascinating.

For this special event, we hope that you will be part of this final step of the developmental process as we plan to produce the show as part of our 2022 Mainstage Season.
The reading will last approximately 90 minutes, and will be followed by a discussion session. Ask the playwright a question, answer the playwrights' questions, give your feedback to playwright, actor, and artistic directors.
