The Nora Salon: “City of Ladies” is Friday, July 26th in NYC!

Posted by in Nora Salon, Past Events

Our next gathering of The Nora Salon is Friday, July 26th in NYC! We hope you’ll join us for a glass of wine, friendly conversation, and an informal reading of Lorraine Liscio’s full-length play: City of Ladies.

Medieval Woman

Paris 1418. Writer Christine de Pizan raises her voice against the forces of power: the Royal Duke who provokes civil war and is in love with her; and the Sorbonne Chancellor who seeks to enlist her to promote a misogynistic book as France’s literary masterpiece. Defying everyone, she publishes her City of Ladies where women play all the key roles in society.  Forced to flee for her life, years later she is vindicated by an unprecedented event.

Christine de Pizan is the first French female author to ever get paid for her work.

We’re back in Alabama on June 24th for a Nora’s Salon South Double Feature!

Posted by in Past Events, Salon South

Our next gathering of Salon South is Monday, June 24th! And it is a Double Feature! We hope our Alabama folks will join us for a glass of wine, friendly conversation, and informal readings of two short plays developed through this year’s The Nora Project: Susan Samuel’s Redtop Road Requiem and Lil Martin’s In the Midst of the Storm.

Set in the early 1960’s in a small Florida town, Susan Samuel’s Redtop Road Requiem follows two children struggling to come to terms with their larger-than-life father’s alcoholism. When he may have been involved in a hit and run accident in which someone may or may not have been killed, the family circles the wagons to protect him.

Lil Martin’s In the Midst of the Storm is about an African American teen girl who is trying to deal with her emotions after witnessing a tragic event. Will she have the courage to tell the truth or will she try to reclaim the innocence she lost?

Both pieces were developed through storytelling and playwriting exercises as a part of this year’s The Nora Project.
