The Poets’ Theatre and the Suffolk Theatre Department will present “One Nation, Indeterminable,” a day of new play readings rooted in the Trump era, on Saturday, June 10, at the Modern Theatre.
“’One Nation, Indeterminable’ is our urgent, theatrical, and celebratory response to the current national climate,” said Theatre Professor Wesley Savick. “We passionately believe in theater's unique capacity to illuminate our collective hopes and fears. These brand-new works are offered as a gift intended to engage the hearts, minds and imaginations of the Boston community.”
The plays of Robert Brustein, American Repertory Theatre founder and artistic director emeritus, and National Book Award author James Carroll, both of whom have been distinguished visiting scholars at the College of Arts & Sciences, will be read at 2 p.m. The company will read plays by Savick and by Suffolk alumni Nick Wilson and Theo Goodell at 7 p.m.
The readings will feature the work of a company of Suffolk University alumni actors and directors and guest actor Ben Evett of The Poets’ Theatre. Savick is the program’s artistic director.
“One Nation, Indeterminable” continues the Theatre Department's commitment to supporting socially engaged work for the stage.
General admission is $5 for each of the two sessions, and tickets are available online or by clling 866-811-4111.
