About The Event
DG Footlights is a gratis 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.
This month! A teenage girl without a home searches for shelter as a fierce snowstorm brings her city to a standstill. To get her through this cold and lonely night, she conjures stories and characters out of snow and light and the everyday things she finds around her. Northern Lights celebrates the power of love, kindness, and imagination to warm the heart and light the way home. This new and original work by Mona Z. Smith and Traci Mariano is inspired by a series of wintry tales created by the great 19th century short-story writer, Hans Christian Andersen.
