A reading of my brand-new play A Hundred Circling Camps, directed by Nina Morrison, is scheduled for Monday, July 16th at 7:30 p.m. at the Goodman Theatre, as part of the Goodman Playwrights Unit:
A Hundred Circling Camps
During the summer of 1932, over 20,000 people hopped trains to Washington D.C. and camped out to demand fair pay for veterans of the World War. The legacy of the Bonus Army is written into our laws and culture, but the march has been largely forgotten. As America protests and forgets and protests and forgets, what is carried forward? Touching on the Poor People’s Campaign, Occupy Wall Street and Standing Rock protests, A Hundred Circling Camps explores what it means to live in public as an act of resistance.
I've been developing this play since August, with the support of the Playwrights Unit, and I'm thrilled to share it with an audience. You can find more information and reserve tickets here.
The reading is free but ticketed, so I recommend reserving a seat.
I also encourage you to check out the bold and beautiful plays by my colleagues in the Playwrights Unit:
