I’m excited to be directing an Ingram New Works play for the fourth year in a row! This year’s play is The Very Last Wishes of Grandpa Joe, or Mia & Hector Go Sightseeing by Cristina Florencia Castro. It’s incredible. Really, it’s a beautifully-crafted play and I couldn’t be happier to help bring it to the next stage of its life in a staged reading. New plays are the best. The readings are May 11 and 17. There are also three other strong plays to see during the series — don’t miss it.
Synopsis: A successful, acclaimed pop-up book artist travels to Ireland on a mission with her best friend — per his late grandfather’s final request — as she secretly, silently grapples with losing her vision. A travel story about two different kinds of loss and the kind of friendship where you’re yelling one second and embracing the next.
