One Nation, Indeterminable – a theatrical response to our nation’s current climate.

June 10 @ 2:00 pm - 10:00 pm EDT

The Suffolk University Theatre Department and The Poets’ Theatre invite you to a day of five new play readings.

One Nation, Indeterminable  A theatrical response to our nation’s current climate.

  One Nation, Indeterminable continues The Suffolk University Theatre Department’s commitment to alumni and students to support socially-engaged work for the stage. Join us for five new play readings by American Repertory Theatre Founder and Artistic Director Emeritus Robert Brustein; National Book Award author James Carroll; Suffolk Professor of Theatre Wesley Savick, playwright of Car Talk: The Musical!!!; and Suffolk alumni Theo Goodell and Nick Wilson. The readings will feature the work of a company of Suffolk University alumni actors and directors and guest actor Ben Evett of The Poets’ Theatre. Says Savick: “One Nation, Indeterminable is our urgent, theatrical and celebratory response to the current national climate. We passionately believe in theatre’s unique capacity to illuminate our collective hopes and fears. These brand new works are offered as a gift intended to engage the hearts, minds and imaginations of the Boston community.” He continues with co-producer Ben Evett, “We have taken this initiative because we believe that the role for theatre in the time of Trump is one that has to be created. We feel there is an urgency which must not be ignored. We welcome everyone to share this day with us.” The five plays will be read in two sessions. Robert Brustein’s play (title forthcoming) and James Carroll’s play Midnight Ride will be read at 2:00 pm. At 7:00, the company will read Nick Wilson’s Polis, Theo Goodell’s I Live on Land, and Wesley Savick’s new musical one state, two state / red state, blue state. Sponsored by The Suffolk University Theatre Department and The Poets’ Theatre. Reading schedule: Robert Brustein & James Carroll – 2pm Wesley Savick, Theo Goodell & Nick Wilson – 7pm
