History Matters logo

FRIDAY, APRIL 29, 7PM
FREE EVENT with RSVP at WP Theater at the McGinn/Cazale Theatre, 2162 Broadway & 76th Street, NYC

Join HISTORY MATTERS/BACK TO THE FUTURE for the staged reading of the 2016 Judith Barlow Prize winning one-act play Her Own Devices by Catholic University of America student Lindsay Adams.

Her Own Devices

By Lindsay Adams
Directed by Jade King Carroll

Hosted by Kathleen Chalfant

Inspired by Mary Chase’s Pulitzer Prize winning Harvey, Her Own Devices shares the story of Madeleine, a young girl with a rare autoimmune disorder that forces her to spend her life in a lab, as doctors run endless tests. She copes with the help of her imaginary friend Robot, and ultimately must decide whether or not to leave the only home she’s known.

A wine & cheese reception will follow the play reading at WP Theater.
