White on White

TICKETS: MAY 30, 2015. $10
On May 30th, 2015 at 5:00PM at the Bruce Mitchell Studio of The Alliance of Resident Theatres/New York the actors of STEPS Theatre will be reading White on White by Mayia Pramatarova. This new play is inspired by the life and works of Emily Dickinson; translated from the Bulgarian by Angela Rodel.

"Saying nothing sometimes says the most", Emily Dickinson wrote in a letter to her aunt in 1874. The main character of White on White is a homeless woman, former actress, who is always reading and talking too much. She exists in the present, but her thoughts live in the era of Emily Dickinson. Emily is the woman's muse, friend and lover. This is a story of a person from a small town with big dreams. What keeps a person going when society defines them as a loser? This play finds itself exploring the crossroads of documentary and fiction, the real and surreal, poetry of life and the grotesqueness of it.

Mayia Pramatarova – Playwright, Director, Co-Founder of onewaytheater.us. Mayia worked as a dramaturge at the Bulgarian National Theatre and Sfumato Theatre Laboratory. Her plays were staged at various theatres in the US, Russia, Canada and Bulgaria. She is the author of more than 250 published articles for Bulgarian, Russian, Italian and American media.

She is a Visiting Professor at the National Academy for Theatre and Film Arts and at the New Bulgarian University in Sofia, Bulgaria.
