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.
