Nora's Playhouse

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.

Nora’s Salon South: “Exposure” is April 30!

Posted by in Past Events, Salon South

The next gathering of our Alabama reading series, Nora’s Salon South, is Tuesday, April 30th.
We hope you’ll join us for a glass of wine, friendly conversation,
and an informal reading of Pauline David-Sax‘s play: Exposure.

In the early 1920s, loyalties are tested and secrets exposed as two women struggle to define themselves. Georgia gained notoriety as the subject of husband Alfred’s photographs and now fights to be taken seriously as a painter in her own right. Beck endures a lackluster job while waiting for her husband, aspiring photographer Paul, to achieve the financial success necessary to support a family. When Alfred and Georgia invite Beck and Paul to their lake house for a visit, Paul sees the trip as a chance to convince Alfred, now a successful gallery owner, to showcase his latest work, but Alfred is preoccupied with his own artistic pursuits. Beck attempts to advocate for Paul with both Alfred and Georgia, not realizing that her interference has the potential to undermine both Georgia’s career and her own marriage.

Loosely based on the lives of real life artists Georgia O’Keeffe, Alfred Stieglitz, Paul Strand, and Rebecca Strand, Exposure explores the complexities of gender, creativity, success, and loyalty.

Playwright Pauline David-Sax will be on hand for the reading and the talkback that follows. Nora’s Playhouse featured David-Sax’s Exposure at The Nora Salon in NYC in November 2017.
