The new TLS is opening its doors to the neighborhood. Join us for a tour of the new space, try out a class or two, or bring the kids along to hear a great story with Rita Storee. On Saturday evening we will host a very special play reading of the Pulitzer-prize winning play Disgraced by Ayad Akhtar.

Although the workshops are free, registration is required in person, starting at 11:00am on each day. Registration priority will be given to students who have not yet had an opportunity to participate.

19:30 – Play reading – Disgraced by Ayad Akhtar Winner of the 2013 Pulitzer Prize for Drama
A staged reading of the Pulitzer-prize winning play, centered on themes of Islamophobia and identity. “In dialogue that bristles with wit and intelligence, Akhtar puts contemporary attitudes toward religion under a microscope, revealing how tenuous self-image can be for people born into one way of being who have embraced another…. Everyone has been told that politics and religion are two subjects that should be off-limits at social gatherings. But watching these characters rip into these forbidden topics, there’s no arguing that they make for ear-tickling good theater” (New York Times).

Immediately following – Talkback

A post-performance conversation with actors and director PJ Escobio
