HomeLand reading with David Straithairn, Jay O. Sanders, and many others
Last Thursday I had the pleasure of being at the Lark Play Development Center once more, this time for a reading of HomeLand by Christopher Cartmill, originally commissioned by the Lied Center for the Performing Arts in Lincoln, Nebraska.
This is an amazing play that I can't begin to describe, but it centers ostensibly on Chief Standing Bear of the Ponca Nation and on themes of home, identity, and so much more.
The cast included me, Christine Marie Brown, David Strathairn, Gerry Rodriguez, LeRoy McClain, Jay O. Sanders, Annie Henk, and Kathryn Layng Hwang.
