The Hope Operas is putting on a series of readings this winter to drive away those artistic blahs. Can’t stand the thought of another “Nutcracker” or “A Christmas Carol”? Yeah, neither can we. So come on out for something different!
First up, Stavrogin’s Confesson by John Regis. Based on a chapter in Dostoevsky’s novel The Possessed (AKA Demons). the play premiered in 1998 New York International Fringe Festival, and had subsequent productions in NYC at the Red Room (1999), in Pittsburgh at the Three Rivers Art Festival (2005) and Kansas City’s Fringe Festival (2012).
Directed by Hope Operas Board member Jonathan Lee Taylor and featuring Terrance Asleford, Paul Riesman, and Megan Dominy.
Curtain a 7:30 PM. Donations accepted at the door. Talk back and discussion to follow the reading.
The reading will take place Dec. 1, 2014 at The Comedy Spot in Ballston Common Mall (4238 Wilson Blvd., Arlington, VA)
