Event description

Description

DG Footlights presents a free reading of The Good Father by Adrienne LaValley (Peekskill, NY.)

The Good Father follows a family struggling with generational bi-polar disorder and explores what happens when that go unchecked, allowing every new generation to be deeply affected in their own way. It sheds light on the decades of irreparable damage that can be caused by choosing to keep silent about a family’s mental illness. Shame and fear perpetuate the idea that hurt people hurt people.

DG Footlights is a program, created and moderated by the Dramatists Guild, that connects dramatists with free space in which to hold a public reading of a new work that is currently in development. This initiative operates on a space-grant model: a representative from the Guild will arrange for a venue to donate space during allocated dates and times, and will ensure that the space is available for dramatists to use to present a self-produced reading to the public, with an optional feedback session following the reading. Attendance is always free and open to all.
