Anaïs Nin: Woman of the Dream—a reading of the play
A reading of the play Anaïs Nin: Woman of the Dream, written by Doraine Poretz, will be staged at the Electric Stage in Venice, California, on August 1, 2010 at 7:30PM.
The play incorporates simultaneous appearances of Nin at various ages (as a young girl; as a young woman in Paris; as an older woman just before publication of the diary) who have sometimes contentious conversations across the years that highlight personal growth and its associated conflicts, disappointment, and fears, while maintaining and purifying the thread of Nin’s essence. Other characters include Joaquin Nin, Anaïs’s father, Henry and June Miller, and Gonzalo Moré.
The reading is free of charge. The seating is limited, so early reservations are encouraged. Reservations can be made by telephone (323-935-2944) or e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org).
