Zoe Comes Home, a new play by Melissa Bell
ZOE COMES HOME, written by Melissa Bell and directed by Laurie A. Guzda, will have a premiere production at the Tusten Theatre in Narrowsburg, NY, on Friday, October 7, and on Saturday, October 8, at 7pm.
Zoe arrives home for a rare visit and finds her estranged mother Gloria, once a respected sculptress, creating monuments from discarded objects in her backyard—distressing the new neighbor. Buried deep in the strange statuary lies a trauma that must be recognized if Zoe and Gloria are ever to heal.
ZOE COMES HOME, produced by DVAA, is presented in tandem with a community art installation titled “A Piece of Garbage.” Artists are asked to create a “little” sculpture from recycled and found objects which is added to make a “BIG” sculpture, evolving into something bigger and more beautiful. Once complete, the tapestry will be transported to the Tusten Theater to become part of the set. “A Piece of Garbage” is a Community Tapestry NEPA project sponsored by the DVAA and Pocono Secrets.
ZOE COMES HOME features cast, creatives, and artists living and performing in the Western Catskills Region: Jess Beveridge, Susan Mendoza, Scott Porter, Thomas Cambridge, Amber Schmidt.
