I am thrilled to announce that “Mirrors,” my first full-length play, has been selected as one of two recipients of The Castillo Theatre’s 2015 Mario Fratti-Fred Newman Political Play Contest! Longtime followers of my work may remember that “Mirrors” was originally commissioned by Freedom Train Productions as part of a residency in 2010, and received an amazing but relatively sparsely attended reading directed by Mekeva McNeil almost exactly five years ago.
I’m happy to say that “Mirrors” will receive a reading at The Castillo Theatre on Monday, August 10th at 7pm. This reading will be directed by Imani. Tickets are $10. To reserve a seat, give the theatre a call at 212-941-5800. If you’re planning on coming, do reserve your seat ahead of time — these readings are known to sell out. I’ll update this page should online ticketing become available. You can find the nitty-gritty below!
“Mirrors” by Azure D. Osborne-Lee
Directed by Imani
Set in the sleepy Mississippi town of Etheridge in the summer of 1960, Mirrors depicts the lives of three African-American women bound by love and loss and family, and the secrets of their shared past.
