Weekend To-Do: 'Voices at the River'

Posted By on Fri, Jul 16, 2010 at 9:16 AM

'VOICES AT THE RIVER II'
6 p.m., Mosaic Templars Cultural Center. Free.

If you've ever complained about the lack of contemporary drama at The Rep, this is your ticket. Particularly since it's free. "Voices at the River," the theater's biennial playwright's residency program, brings together Latino- and African-American playwrights to exchange ideas and, on Friday and Saturday, stage public readings of their new work. Audiences will have the opportunity to offer feedback following each play. Tearrence Chisholm's "Liddy's Sammiches, Potions, and Baths" (6 p.m. Friday) is about "the daughter of a sorceress who seeks to realize her identity through her deceased mother's spell book." "Wetback" (8:30 p.m. Friday), by Elaine Romero, tracks the fates of a Latina high school principal and the undocumented Mexican worker she fires to protect her position. The Young Playwright Selection, Michael Chavez's "Waking Up To You" (2 p.m. Saturday), is about a fleeting romance. Augusto Federico Amador's "Solterona" (6 p.m. Saturday) centers on Maria as she cares for her "repressive" mother. "Roses in the Water" (8:30 p.m. Saturday), by La'Chris Jordan, follows a young woman who enlists in the U.S. Navy to escape the perilous New Orleans housing projects. Reservations, via The Rep box office, are encouraged.
