TNC Alive Presents Virtual Reading Of LOCKDOWN: EPILOGUE By Frank J. Avella

Theater for the New City will present - TNC "Alive" reading of Lockdown: Epilogue, the conclusion of Lockdown 2020 by Frank J. Avella (Vatican Falls, Lured, Consent, Orville Station) on Thursday, October 15th at 7PM.

During this continued time of social isolation, Theater for the New City (TNC) strives to keep arts alive with performances from the TNC community and abroad featured on TNC's Website, Facebook, Instagram and YouTube channels. Tune in: https://www.facebook.com/theaterforthenewcity/

The cast includes Marc Lombardo, Nicholas Turturro & Cali Gilman, with Technical Direction and Narration by John David West.

Lockdown: Epilogue picks up where Lockdown 2020 left off (although it can be viewed as a stand-alone piece as well) and takes things to absurdist extremes as we see what the characters have been driven to during COVID lockdown and how it might involve a government overthrow.

Frank's play, Orville Station, inaugurated the Theater for the New City Facebook page's Live reading series back on April 15th.
