Kemp Appears In Montalvo Arts Center Reading
Margaret Laurena Kemp, associate professor of theatre and dance, will appear in “Roman and Julie,” a staged reading of a play-in-progress at the Montalvo Arts Center on Sept. 26.
The work by Alva Rogers examines the historical and cultural dynamics in an interracial relationship, through time and across lifetimes. With scenes radiating forward and horizontally through time, “Roman and Julie” challenges the conventions of realism by engaging the audience in one couple’s intimate world. Resisting neat, linear plot structures, the play follows the two characters’ process of assigning meaning to their experiences in the third act of their lives.
The performance begins at 7 p.m. in the Carriage House Theatre. Tickets are $10 or $5 for students. For details visit the Montalvo Arts Center website.
