From Frybread to Tombs

/ Leave a Comment
First, an acknowledgement to last week's Frybread team for the incredible amount of work they were able to accomplish in such a short amount of time. Everyone arrived with the shared goal of strengthening the script's story line and providing playwright Carolyn Dunn with the support and encouragement she needed in order to achieve that goal. Carolyn reached a major breakthrough with the script this past week and we have Jere Hodgin, Rob Caisley, our very own Jean Bruce Scott, our amazing actors, and our lovely audience members to thank for that. I can't wait for you all to see Frybread Queen in her full regalia come March!

On a completely separate note, next week on November 16th at 7:30p, we, along with San Diego State University's Intercultural Center, American Indian Studies, and the School of Theatre, Television, and Film will be presenting a staged reading of Marie Clements' Tombs of the Vanishing Indian at SDSU's Experimental Theatre in celebration of American Indian Heritage Month. The cast includes Brian Bielawski, Jacob Bruce, Carla-Rae, Tonantzin Carmelo, David Ellenstein, Elizabeth Frances, and DeLanna Studi with Randy Reinholz directing. Please feel free to join us if you're in the area; the event is free and open to the public. Check back next week for info regarding the translation process for Tombs with testimonials from Virginia Carmelo of the Tongva/ Gabrielino Nation; Jennifer Bobiwash, our Assistant Director from this summer's Playwrights Retreat; and Carla-Rae, who will be reprising her role as The Lone Woman at this November's reading.
