Regional Writers Showcase: Alexandria

Apr 17 – Apr 17


By Jeffery W. Jones
Directed by Jean Gordon Ryon

A devoted nun works sequestered in an underground cave, cataloging an endless stack of books no longer permitted by the government above ground. One Christmas Eve, she’s inexplicably joined by a young woman to aid her labor. In a world full of unspoken secrets, we wonder: How did they come to spend their days here? What’s so special about these books? And will each woman find her own salvation?

The Regional Writers Showcase, a collaboration between Geva and Writers & Books, gives area playwrights the opportunity to bring their works to local audiences, showcased by professional actors, directors and dramaturgs. The featured scripts were selected from over 50 plays that were submitted after a call for work. The reading will be followed by discussion with the playwright and director.
