SCHEDULE OF READINGS


FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 9
7 PM

Miller, Mississippi
By Boo Killebrew
Directed by Lee Sunday Evans

Set in volatile Civil Rights-era Mississippi,
Miller, Mississippi is a Southern Gothic tale of
one family’s heartfelt and devastating
descent into ruin. As the country attempts
to lurch towards a future of racial equality,
the Miller family is poisoned by their own
legacy.
Read our interview with Killebrew

SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 10
5 PM

The last tiger in haiti
By Jeff Augustin
Directed by Lileana Blain-Cruz 

It’s the final night of Kanaval in Haiti, and
a group of restaveks, abandoned children
living in servitude, trade spellbinding
tales blurring fiction and reality, and dreaming
of freedom. When two of them reunite 15
years later, reality reveals itself to be more haunting than they could have imagined. 
Read our interview with Augustin

8:30 PM 
dance nation
By Clare Barron 
Directed by Lee Sunday Evans 

An army of pre-teen competitive
dancers plot to take over the world. A play about ambition, growing up and how
to find our souls in the heat of it all. 
Read our interview with Barron

(Ages 18+)

Discover or REDISCOVER your love for
the playwrighting process by joining
LWT’s Director of Education,
Madelyn Ardito, in a Bake-Off
experience that you will not forget.
Writers will be given a "recipe" of
ingredients, curated by LWT staff,
to draft a short play in under 90
minutes. If desired, plays will be
shared with the other playwrights.
Come to Long Wharf with your
tablet, laptop, or favorite writing
journal and immerse yourself in
the creativity and inspiration that
the Bake-Off method ignites.
This workshop is ideal for
theatre enthusiasts, victims of
writer’s block, anyone looking
to spark their imagination!

us in Stage II for Happy Hour
and our final day of the
Contemporary American
Voices Festival.
