Home Land Premiers May 6th, 2009


A new play by Christopher Cartmill 
commissioned by the Lied Center for the Performing Arts. In an event produced by the Messenger Theater Company of NYC.

Where are you from? What is the landscape of the human heart? How is the place we call home shaped by our history and our hopes? Playwright Christopher Cartmill explores these questions in an exciting and moving new play written specifically for the Lied Center for Performing Arts and for ALL those who have called this place home. 

“A female Native doctor fulfilling a promise and building a practice, a Spanish conquistador who has lost his way a vast ancient prairie, a young man seeking shelter, safety and a new life free of persecution, a young man and woman transformed by violent encounter, an guilty army officer intent on peace and justice, a French trapper embracing freedom, a suburban housewife trying to put the finishing touches on new house and a Native Chief standing for his right to go home: all these and more share the stage and discover that we perhaps have things common that transcend even time.”

Wednesday, May 6th at 7:30PM
Thursday, May 7th at 12PM and 7:30PM
Friday, May 8th at 7:30PM

HOME LAND will be explored in a unique staged event reading directed by Kristin Horton.
