Hello Internet! Today is Monday, November 5th, which is Guy Fawkes Day/Bonfire Night, but it is also…. the first day of rehearsal for Original.
Original has been in progress for about 3 years, and a playwright’s unit, one-week workshop and several drafts later, today we start in on the final stage of the process. The production community is just awesome and I’m very grateful to Jenn and PerSIStence Theatre for having faith in this little play. Here’s the blurb:
Eve wants justice for herself, for humanity and for women in the face of a God that set her up to fail and then abandoned her.
Pandora wants to protect the world from the secret evil she carries with her everywhere.
Embla wants the end of the world and a new beginning – one that, this time, doesn’t include her.
Performed as a one-woman show by its writer Sharon King-Campbell, Original explores what being a woman means and has meant throughout Western Civilization, from creation to right now.
