In January 2020, we’ll be back for our 4th year of our reading series, The Nora Salon! And, to get the year off to a good start, we’re going to be hosting salons in both Alabama and New York! Whether you are on the East Coast or the Gulf Coast, we hope you’ll join us for a glass of wine, friendly conversation, and an informal reading of a terrific play this January!

Our next gathering of The Nora Salon is the afternoon of Sunday, January 19th on Manhattan’s Upper West Side! We hope you’ll join us for a glass of wine, friendly conversation, and an informal reading of Evangelia Costantakos Kingsley’s two-act play, Simple Gifts.
In Hancock, Indiana, octogenarian ex-Metropolitan Opera diva and retired singing teacher, Elena Maxwell, is at the end of her life. Her much younger partner, Jean Lee, executive director of the Archives of Traditional Music at Hancock University, may beat her to the finish line. A young singer, Kirsten Mintow, needs guidance at the beginning of her musical career. The history of a nearby Shaker village breaks through the fabric of 1994. Simple Shaker song melds with sumptuous classical music, including the Shaker-infused music of Aaron Copland, as the play explores the theme of extinction and asks, “What makes life worth living?”

Montgomery’s own Annie Ramsey will be on hand for the reading and the talkback that follows!
On the edge of a fairytale-esque world sits the village of Warren, an old place permitted to exist on the whims of an ancient horror on the promise of their participation in a grizzly ritual. Four children must make their way to the far off village of Lair, and one is not to return unchanged. It now falls to their fellow villagers, and the audience members, to suss out the events of a single night in the woods.
