Staged reading, directed by Rachel Sharp
A noted photographer sets out to explore the topography of “scars.” Her journey lands her in the mysterious realm of an undiscovered folk artist on a small farm in North Alabama. This intimate portrait explores the meaning and purpose of art and the struggle of the lost and tortured souls that seek to create it.
Don’t miss a live, pre-performance conversation at 7:15 pm with Alabaster playwright Audrey Cefaly, along with Mason School of Theater Associate Professor Edward Gero and student dramaturg Jarrod Clark.
