Mirror Stage Presents Local Playwrights In Conversation

Presented in tandem as simply staged readings, The Assailant by Alma Davenport, and The Swimming Pool by Stacy D. Flood use the same multi-generational, multi-racial cast. A moderated discussion exploring the issues in more depth follows every performance.
