It’s always fascinating to be a small piece of an enormous work, such as This is Reading. For months, you hear bits and bobs about the grand scheme but focus only on your tiny piece. This past weekend, we saw it all come together at Franklin Street Station.
This podcast episode concludes our series on death. It features Jeanine Serralles performing a monologue based on an interview with an inmate at the national women’s prison in Bogotá, Colombia. Lorena Lopez conducted the interview as part of a larger project about the prison’s annual beauty pageant. The episode closes with the song “Stars,” which Michael Friedman wrote for the Civilians’ show “Gone Missing.” Matt Dellapina, Emily Ackerman, Tony-nominee Daniel Jenkins and Emily Rossell perform the song, accompanied by Kris Kukel.
