More about Living in the Twilight With Our Two Selves:
Living In The Twilight With Our Two Selves is a story about love and hope at the end of civilization. An unknown cataclysmic event leaves only George, Maria and a few baristas of a well-known coffee-house chain as survivors. Struggling to survive, George and Maria do what they know to do: Maria, an alcoholic ornithologist, sits vigil waiting for the doomed birds to arrive; George, a writer with writer’s block, teaches a workshop to a set of shadowy, surreal students. When dead British writer Radclyffe Hall arrives to help George, he fears he’s finally lost his mind. Freedom finally comes when he faces his inner fears.
The reading will be directed by WPI’s Vice-President, Kathleen Lindsey, and will feature the performing talents of Orlando veterans Steven DeWoody, Marcie Schwalm, Kate Singleton, and Robert Wright. A talk-back will follow the reading.
