The Nora Salon: “Great White” is Friday, January 11th in NYC!

Our next gathering of NYC’s The Nora Salon is Friday, January 11th! It’s year three of The Nora Salon (!!) and we hope you’ll join us in Brooklyn for a glass of wine, friendly conversation, and an informal reading of Deborah Yarchun’s full-length play: Great White.

Fourteen-year-old Brooke is in trouble. Her sixteen-year-old sister, Ivy, is manic and increasingly violent, and their mother, Gail, refuses to acknowledge the danger. As Brooke struggles to hold her family together, she copes by tracking a great white shark. This leads her to Luis, a troubled fifteen-year-old boy intent on swimming out to meet the shark in the ocean. As their friendship deepens, Brooke becomes increasingly aware of the shark drawing closer in her own life: that her sister, in a manic fit, might kill her. Set in present-day southern Florida, between coastal floods, Great White is a coming-of-age drama that explores unremitting love for family, and the consequences of inaction.
