Staged Reading of CLOSE and CARRY WE OPENLY

10/23/2017 - 7:00pm
Join us for a staged reading of CLOSE and CARRY WE OPENLY. Written by Nick Stokes, both are one-act stage plays of people of color threatened by dominant culture, presented by a minority cast, and directed by José Amador.
 
CLOSE
Liberty. Equality. Property.
People of color.
A remodel.
They can't get in.
 
CARRY WE OPENLY
Justice. Felicity. Liberty.
People of color.
A gun.
They can't escape.
 

CARRY WE OPENLY was produced by amador/stokes at Seattle Fringe Fest 2017. The creation of CLOSE and this reading have received funding from the Tacoma Arts Commission.

 
Nick Stokes is the author of the novels AFFAIR and YOU CHOOSE. His plays have been encountered in various venues: DUELS in a built garden at 12th Ave Arts and On the Boards NWNW Fest, WAS IS WILL BE MUSIC in a Seattle hotel room, and THE SOUND WE MAKE in Tacoma's Old City Hall. DUELS, produced in 2016, received reviews that said such words as "an absorbing work of agricultural absurdity" and "a vibrant, surreal production" and "DUELS presents a cornucopia of senses, languages, themes, and genres ... reminds us what it means to be human" and "Come the f*** on with this s***." He lives in Tacoma, and is virtually sometimes at nickstokes.net.
