The Playwrights Workshop‘s Readers Theatre Series 2016 will continue on Wednesday April 6th with TWILIGHT by Jabari Ayinde Taitt.
The playwright says, ‘TWILIGHT is a play that explores a teenage girl’s attempt to decide between being a single parent and having an abortion. The Oxford English Mini-Dictionary describes the word ‘twilight’ as “light from the sky after sunset; the period of this.” The play begins with Ms Joyce’s ‘sunset’ (death) and end’s with Celeste’s enlightenment. George Santayana said that “…those who are unaware of history are destined to repeat it…” Celeste is reminded of Ms Joyce’s past which aids her in determining her future.
