A Sundays@Six Series Reading in The Jewel Box Theater
The Lovers is a play about a Marc Chagall painting which John and Melanie (lovers living in London), are obsessed with. We move back and forth in time between two love stories: Marc and Bella Chagall in Paris and Vitebsk, Russia at the beginning of the 20th century and John and Melanie in London, England at the beginning of the 21st century. As we negotiate between past and present, trauma and romance, the discrepancy between the fantasy of love and the reality of love becomes more apparent. Semi-finalist, 2015 O'Neill Playwrights Conference.
