 Eventbrite - Playwrights Foundation ROUGH READINGS Series

After committing an unforgivable crime, Leroy retreats to his long-lost lover Berta’s house to take refuge and make amends. Their electrifying reunion swells from an agitated argument about the past to an impassioned plot to escape fate and start a new life. Angelica Cherí weaves an intimate and imaginary origin story that explores the reality of incarcerated African Americans in the 1920s.

Angelica Cherí is a playwright, musical theatre book writer/lyricist, screenwriter and poet. Her play The Sting of White Roses, Part Two of the Prophet’s Cycle, was produced at the North Carolina Black Repertory Company for a limited run. Part One of the Prophet’s Cycle, The Seeds of Abraham, was produced at the Billie Holiday Theatre and workshopped at the Pershing Square Signature Center, under the mentorship of playwright Lynn Nottage. Angelica is also currently an I AM SOUL Playwright Fellow at the National Black Theatre, developing I Will Not Lie to David, Part Three of The Prophet’s Cycle. Her original TV pilot Derailed is currently a semi-finalist for the Showtime Tony Cox Episodic Screenplay Competition for the 2017 Nantucket Film Festival. Angelica received her BA in Theatre from UCLA, MFA in Playwriting from Columbia University and MFA in Musical Theatre Writing from NYU. http://www.angelicacheri.com

Trinity University Theater- Presents A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM

Photo Credit: Siggi Ragnar of sRagnar Fotografi
A Midsummer Night’s Dream

by William Shakespeare

Directed by Stieren Guest Artist Nona Shepphard
 
The well-known comedy follows four Athenian lovers as they lose themselves in a wood of mischievous fairies, rustic players and misfired love potions.  Everyone pursues each other on the eve of midsummer-a night when anything can happen. Trinity’s production relies on its actors to create the world of the play using physicality, music, and imagination. “I don’t want to tell the audience what to think,” says Nona Shepphard. “The theatre can create spectacle and magic with practically nothing.”
Director Nona Shepphard
