A world premiere. With wit, poetry, and a moving intertwining of history and the contemporary, Amanuensis imagines the life and relationships of John Milton and his daughters during the seven years they served as scribes for Milton’s writing—while blind—of the epic poem Paradise Lost. Written by a contemporary feminist playwright who will be in residence for two weeks of the rehearsal process, Amanuensis explores creativity, genius, gender, and our access to the divine as well as democracy with sparkling theatricality. The play is “set” during 17th century England during civic volatility (book burning, executions, major shifts in governance, plague) yet equally also “today” in the theater space. 

Parts for wordsmiths and people who love to play! Casting 4 women and 3 men. Multiracial casting preferred. Script available for checkout from the front desk in Room 108.

Preparation: 
Please come prepared to share a 1-2 minute monologue or poem (comedic or serious, contemporary or classic, your choice!). Performing is more important than memorization. If you cannot prepare one in advance, there will be options available to read on-site.
