SYNOPSIS: Phoebe is a young poet, forever living in the shadow of her estranged mother’s literary acclaim. When her mother unexpectedly dies, however, Phoebe is left with two complicated legacies: donating her mother’s organs and reading her mother’s unpublished confessional journal. Meanwhile, Tess and her partner Lydia receive a late night phone call, informing them that a donor heart is available for Tess – good news, but news that has come far sooner than they were prepared for. As these two families form an unlikely connection, they struggle to understand the politics and poetics of organ donation—and they dare to hope that pieces of us can live on after great tragedy.
The Bridge Initiative: Women in Theatre is thrilled to host Her Voice, a monthly play reading and music series running September 2018 to April 2019, as a co-presentation with the ASU Kerr Cultural Center in Scottsdale. Capitalizing on ASU Kerr’s professional sound, lighting and technical talent, we feature new works presented by local professional musicians, directors and actors.
NOTE: Our artists 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.
