About this Event

Conch Shell Productions CONCH SHELL NEW WORKS READING SERIES showcases stage readings of 3 new plays written by 3 Caribbean-American writers: Magaly Colimon-Christopher, Nelson Diaz-Marcano, and Phanesia Pharel.

Performance location: The Bruce Mitchell Room – 520 8th Avenue 3rd Floor, New York, NY 10018.

Show dates/times:

October 6th 8pm;

October 12th 4pm and 7pm.

Q&A will follow each performance.

A curated reading series of new plays written by Caribbean-American artists opens on Oct 6th with Puerto Rican playwright Nelson Diaz-Marcano’s MISFIT, AMERICA: AN AMERICAN WESTERN WITH COLOR. This play combines the magical realistic influences of Latin American literature with the Western genre popularized in the twentieth century to tell a tale that explores racism, the love that defines non-traditional family structures, and gender nonconformity. On October 12th at 4pm, Haitian-American Magaly Colimon-Christopher’s DESTINATION: OOOH AAAH YUMMY examines the complexities of women’s quest for joy and purpose. Finally, at 7pm Haitian-American writer Phanésia Pharel’s LUCKY completes the series with a story of a woman coming to terms with sexual trauma and discovering the power of healing through writing.

Conch Shell New Works Readings Series is made possible by the 2020 Cycle 1 ARTNY Creative Space Grant and individual donations. Seats are limited. For reservations and playwright bios go to: https://conchshellproductions.com/
