Word for Word presents

“Hard Times” and “Burning Bright”
by Ron Rash

A Word for Word Off the Page Reading

September 19 | 7PM at Z Below

Off the Page staged readings are the first step in developing a Word for Word production—taking a short story from the page to the stage. Come see the very first steps of our process, and, after the reading, let us know what you think! This installment features “Hard Times” and “Burning Bright” from Burning Bright by Ron Rash. Directed by Amy Kossow.

Winner of the 2010 Frank O’Connor award—”the world’s richest prize for the short story form.”
