HUDSON VALLEY: DG Footlights™ - A Thousand Cranes by David Caudle

December 05 2019 / 07:00 PM


DG Footlights presents a free reading of A Thousand Cranes by David Caudle (of Putnam Valley, NY).

A Thousand Cranes synopsis: When his daughter is left in a coma after a vicious assault, a white Christian conservative Congressman refuses to allow the morning after pill on religious grounds. The investigation quickly uncovers evidence that any potential offspring may be of mixed race. The prospect challenges his faith, and his sincerity in the assertion that all lives matter.

DG Footlights is a program, created and moderated by the Dramatists Guild, that connects dramatists with free space in which to hold a public reading of a new work that is currently in development. This initiative operates on a space-grant model: a representative from the Guild will arrange for a venue to donate space during allocated dates and times, and will ensure that the space is available for dramatists to use to present a self-produced reading to the public, with an optional feedback session following the reading. Attendance is always free and open to all.
