Her Voice – January
The third play in the Her Voice series is a free professional reading of A Discourse on the Wonders of the Invisible World by Liz Duffy Adams.
SYNOPSIS: Ten years after Abigail Williams, instigator of the witch trials, disappeared from Salem, she turns up at the frontier tavern of fellow witch-hunter Mercy Lewis. About to leave the colonies forever, it’s her last chance to understand the madness that overtook them. But with war threatening northern New England yet again, Mercy and her fellow townspeople are in no mood for Abigail’s doubts, which suggest to them complicity with the devil. And just when everything is at its most dangerously tense – the devil himself shows up.
The Bridge Initiative: Women in Theatre is thrilled to host Her Voice, a monthly play reading and music series running October 2017 to April 2018 in collaboration with the ASU Kerr Cultural Center in Scottsdale. Capitalizing on the ASU Kerr’s professional sound, lighting and technical talent, we will feature new works presented by local musicians, directors and actors.
We are also excited to continue our partnership with musicians Dr. Marilyn Clark Silva and Sarah Off of Phoenix based Tandem Duo. They will be presenting new works by female composers to our audiences in the series.
NOTE: Our actors and director are paid a stipend and play rights are secured and paid for. We are able to offer these readings free through funding provided by our generous donors. If you would like to contribute, please visit our Donors page.
