Delaney Britt Brewer, Firework Theater Lit Manager and author of An Octopus Love Story (2007, Center Stage) and Wolves (2009, 59E59), appears with director Kara-Lynn Vaeni for a stage reading of her new piece, The Brink of Us at UMass Amherst on April 2.
RSVP to the free reading on Facebook.
Here’s an excerpt from Delaney’s post about the new piece from UMass’s website:
The Brink of Us is a play I’ve been developing for the past three years. I started writing the piece in a workshop I took with Jon Robin Baitz. I began only with an idea of having multiple characters who stay in the same location, and I wanted that location to become a sort of character of its own. The premise was then hatched that 8 former college friends who’d all but one attended Bard together would be shut in a log cabin upstate due to an extreme snow storm and one more seriously supernatural element: an overpopulation of large and predatory deer.
