A staged reading of a new play-in-progress
By Victor Wishna

Amanda, a hospital volunteer with a guardian-angel complex, meets her newest assignment, Bud, a terminally ill patient with very little patience. She’s a single mom with a benevolent soul; he’s a bitter Navy vet with one last mission to complete—and he insists it’s a solo. With warmth, wit, and bite, DNR explores the complexities of human connection and asks, what does it mean to be alone? What does it mean to be alive?

Featuring Jen Mays, Scott Cordes, and Ellen Kirk.

A talkback with the playwright, cast, and director will follow the staged reading. Please join us and be part of the development of this new work!
