NAV Virtual Reading: The Innkeepers
Streaming through July 31
The New American Voices Reading Series moves online for Summer 2020 with three exciting new plays debuting the last Tuesday of the month in June, July, and August. The series continues on July 28, 8:00 PM ET with The Innkeepers, by Novid Parsi and directed by Kate Bergstrom.
Four guests arrive at a remote rural inn for what appears to be a weekend getaway. But the tenacious innkeeper, Arzu Amiri, has something up her sleeve: she has assembled these guests, who are bound together by a terrible event involving her son many years before. In this compelling and politically resonant murder mystery, the guests re-enact their versions of the truth until Arzu arrives at her own devastating decision.
Following the premiere of the reading, stay tuned for a post-show discussion with writer Novid Parsi, director Kate Bergstrom.
The plays in the New American Voices Summer 2020 Virtual Reading Series are written by people of color, and examine issues surrounding race, culture, ethnicity, immigration, crime, and family from three completely distinct perspectives.
This stream will remain available for viewing until Friday, July 31. Viewing this reading is offered free of charge to everyone.
