Page-to-Stage Festival at the Kennedy Center
A staged reading
Georgetown University Theater & Performance Studies Program
By Cristina Ibarra (COL ‘17)
Directed by Prof. Maya E. Roth
A woman heads off to America to escape poverty and pursue the American Dream. Her brother remains in the Philippines to write poetry and practice Buddhism. Through the grind of 9 to 5s and psychedelic rock, the two siblings search for meaning and fulfillment within the worlds of the colonizer and the colonized. Developed in the Georgetown University Theater & Performance Studies Program’s Hope Playwriting Seminar, taught by Christine Evans. Followed by post-performance discussion. The 16th Annual Page-to-Stage Festival features more than 60 D.C.-area theater companies at the Kennedy Center for a series of free readings and open rehearsals of plays and musicals in development by local, regional, and national playwrights, librettists, and composers–some with scripts in hand, others almost fully staged. The free performances reflect the dynamic make-up of all corners of the city, whether you are a newcomer or a veteran to theater.
