Event description

Description

WARNING: Show contains strong language. Not suitable for children under 13.

NOTE: Please allow time to find metered street parking.

This is a staged reading of a new play with a short reception immediately following. A devised/physical theatre piece, this first showing of the play invites the public into the development process. A more fully realized production will be presented in Los Angeles this summer. A subsequent production in NYC is also planned.

Adapted from an upcoming graphic novel, Silent Joy tells the story of a girl trapped by her own demons who decides to help a kind, mute boy named Joy whose mouth is sewn shut. Together they set out on an epic journey, facing otherworldly perils, to seek revenge on the person that inflicted this abuse on Joy. In the end, the girl must face her darkest memories to find redemption for her friend and discover the truth about herself.

A modern narrative inspired by the classic quest story, Dante's "Inferno", Silent Joy is an enthralling tale of friendship and forgiveness that at once deals with the messiness of humanity and contemplates the reasons for existence.
