Play in the Box: The Magic of Nothing by Misha Sinclair
Friday November 30th
Be sure to join us for the November Play in the Box staged reading of Misha Sinclair’s powerful and topical full-length playThe Magic of Nothing.
Notice: This play contains strong sexual content and graphic language. Audience discretion is advised.
Dulcian, a middle-aged woman still in the peak of her prime finds herself at a prickly crossroads as she tries, valiantly, to be everything for everyone - ready, willing and able for Nathanial, her hot-blooded, much younger French lover, and a sage, maternal guiding light for Justine, her teenage niece on the precipice of discovering her own sexuality and all too eager to take the leap. When the past begins to ravage the present, unearthing scars she thought were long buried, and playfulness turns ugly and dark, Dulcian is pushed to choose, knowing that the consequences of her choice will most likely be irrevocable. Trusted confidant George tries to carve a saving path, but his counsel may be too late. Which way will she go – or is there only one way out?
