Eve's Song - Speaker Series


On Thursday, November 1, following the 8:00 PM performance of EVE'S SONG, join Public Forum for a post-show Speaker Series titled "The Virgin, The Monster, and The Victim." Playwright Patricia Ione Lloyd, founder of Black Girl Magic literary magazine Kenesha Williams, and others will participate in an intimate conversation about women horror writers, the stereotypes they face (on the page and in the world), and more things that go bump in the night. Audio of this Speaker Series conversation will also be available on the Public Forum’s website one week after the event.

From The Public’s Emerging Writers Group alum and 2017-18 Tow Playwright-in-Residence Patricia Ione Lloyd (Pretty Hunger) and Obie Award-winning director Jo Bonney (Mlima's Tale) comes a stunning, genre-bending new drama about the haunting of a black family in America.

In the aftermath of a messy divorce and a daughter coming out as queer, Deborah is trying to keep things normal at home. But as black people continue to be killed beyond their four walls, the outside finds its way in, blurring the lines between family dynamics, politics, and the spirit world. How long can family dinners keep the dangers outside at bay?

Filled with dark humor and boiling suspense, EVE’S SONG examines our present racial climate through the eyes of a regular American family.
