"Here it is saturday" & "Emergency Room NOtebook, 1977" by Lucia Berlin

A Word for Word Off the Page Reading

March 20 | 7 PM  in 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. We continue our exploration of this fascinating writer's work with two stories - one that takes place in a prison writing class, the other in an emergency room - and both are filled with Berlin's usual style, wit and compassion. This installment features “Here It Is Saturday” and “Emergency Room Notebook, 1977” by Lucia Berlin. 

Come see the very first steps of our process, and, after the reading, let us know what you think!
