Chiori Miyagawa

This Lingering Life takes place in someplace like the U.S., where we meet a woman with tragic hair, feudal warriors, a mother whose son was kidnapped, a blind beggar, dead lovers, a pathetic old man in love with a teenager, a boy whose father is an arrow, and other sentient beings. It all happens in the present time, except when it happens in an ancient era.

Chiori will work with director David Herskovits May 14 - 18, with an open reading on May 18 at 3pm. Please call New Dramatists for reservations at 212-757-6960.
