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:

  1. 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.”
  2. Admission is free, but reservations are required. Call 617 426 6969 to reserve.
  3. The reading is accompanied by FREE APPETIZERS, and they are out of this world.
  4. Cash bar. But it’s like, right there.
  5. It’s an intimate, friendly setting with a receptive and well-fed audience. I’ve always had a great time.
  6. 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.
