Anne Carson: "The Glass Essay"

An Off the Page Reading

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. Join us for "The Glass Essay" by Anne Carson. Learn more about her and her work in this 2013 New York Times article, "THE INSCRUTIBLE BRILLIANCE OF ANNE CARSON."Rights Pending.

Running time approximately 1 hour, with no intermission.

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