My new play, The Akhmatova Journals, will be featured in the Second Sunday Reading Series at Erbaluce Boston, Sunday, April 9 at 7 pm. If you’ve never been to any readings in this series, there’s a few things you should know:
- Readings are in the upstairs dining room at Erbaluce Boston, which “serves an Italian menu with a focus on local product, seasonal, high quality ingredients and Piemontese flavors.”
- Admission is free, but reservations are required. Call 617 426 6969 to reserve.
- The reading is accompanied by FREE APPETIZERS, and they are out of this world.
- Cash bar. But it’s like, right there.
- It’s an intimate, friendly setting with a receptive and well-fed audience. I’ve always had a great time.
- And here’s a blurb about the play: At the height of the Stalinist purges, Russia’s once-lauded poet Anna Akhmatova languishes in poverty and obscurity, desperately seeking the release of her imprisoned son. A chance visit by writer Lydia Chukovskaya initiates a powerful literary partnership and friendship, centered on poetry and haunted by the shadow of the prison wall.
Hope you’ll join me on April 9 at 7 pm for some new play (and appetizer) action.
