Our line-up for this Sunday’s winter solstice event–Sunday, December 20th at 6pm at Judson Church– is a glorious thing. And, we’ve just recruited another dear pal to take part: playwright and roustabout Winter Miller. The theme is STARDUST–and it’s our first evening gathering at a new venue. Winter’s a wonderful writer and activist and for this evening she’s going to read a piece about the cosmos and stars. Who better to lead us in a greater understanding of who we are, on the eve of the dark, cold, season….
here’s her bio:
Winter Miller was raised by activist and feminist parents in various hamlets in New England from which she emerged relatively unscathed and unsurprisingly similar to the adorable wolves who raised her. She is a foundling member of the Obie-winning 13P and digs provocative theater. Her play In Darfur premiered in a sold-out run at The Public, followed by an SRO performance at their 1800-seat Delacorte, a first for a play by a woman. Then, in a puff of smoke, she vanished. Other plays include: Spare Rib (A History of Abortion), No One Is Forgotten, The Penetration Play, Look At Us, The Arrival, Conspicuous the musical Amandine and a collection of short and very short plays. Her work is published by Samuel French, Playscripts and can be found in anthologies in dusty archives. New Georges’ and Lark affiliated artist.
