The Great Gods of Sokolov Reading

Date: 12.04.2017 - 12.04.2017

Time: 07:00 PM - 10:00 PM

Location: Sharon Arts Center, 30 Grove St, Peterborough, NH

NHIA’s Master of Fine Arts (MFA) in Writing for Stage and Screen program is pleased to present a reading of The Great God Sokolov. The Great God Sokolov concerns a film director engaged in making his final movie, while simultaneously playing a major character in the project he's shooting. The themes of the story, and the material for the film-within-the-film, are based on MFA faculty member Karen Sunde's play "To Moscow," which centers around the complicated relationship between Anton Chekhov and Konstantin Stanislavsky, 18th c. giants of the Russian theater. The reading will be performed by a professional cast of actors including: Briget Bierne, Lisa Bostnar, Tim Clark, Nora Fiffer, Chris Huntington, Jason Lambert, Kathy Manfre and Gary Sloan.

The reading will take place at the Sharon Arts Center Gallery, 30 Grove Street, Peterborough, at 7 pm on December 4, 2017 and is free and open to the public. A reception will precede the reading at 6:30 pm, where attendees will have an opportunity to meet the players and learn more about the MFA in Writing for Stage and Screen program at NHIA. There will be a Q&A on the production after the reading.
 
This event will prove to be a highlight for the Sharon Arts Center. A reading of "To Moscow" was recently given at The Player’s Club in New York City with great acclaim. The event is also a chance to get a sneak peak into the film that’s slated for production in 2019.
