We’re excited to kick off our spring 2016 line-up of new play readings with Jonathan Ceniceroz’s “The Cruise,” directed by Christian Nagler, on Wednesday 2/10 at 4PM in Durham Studio Theater. Free and open to the public.
In “The Cruise,” Ceniceroz explores the colonial histories and dark politics underneath the decadence of Caribbean cruise culture. Join us for a reading of the piece, followed by a discussion with the playwright facilitated by our own Martha Herrera-Lasso.
