Alum Aaron Carter’s play First Words will be read at Around The Coyote on November 18th. First Words explores the power that hope exerts on our perception of reality. The influence of hope can allow us to persevere against all odds. It can also blind us to important truths. In First Words, the power of hope can either save or destroy a family raising an autistic child… Around the Coyote is committed to fostering new art in all its forms. This reading series is a platform for playwrights to reach new audiences while workshopping new scripts. The reading series offers playwrights and directors a forum in which to table their script in the hopes of creating a stronger play. Directed by Zach Zulauf. Nov. 18th, 2006 at 7pm at the Around the Coyote Gallery. $5 suggested donation.
