Night Over Erzinga
October 09 - November 11, 2012
A Rolling World Premiere
Written by Adriana Sevahn Nichols
Directed by Lisa Portes
Pierce Hall at the Historic Chicago Temple Building, 77 W Washington St., Chicago
Spanning the Ottoman Empire to New York City, and three generations of an Armenian and Dominican family, Adriana Sevahn Nichols' Night Over Erzinga explores how a man can lose everything but his heart, and how a grandmother can reach through time, unearth an untold story, and bring her children “home.” From collective tragedy to personal triumph, ancestors reunite with the living in a breathtakingly beautiful journey toward making peace with the past and reclaiming one’s heritage.
Adriana Sevahn Nichols' Night Over Erzinga was originally commissioned and developed by Middle East America: A National New Plays Initiative created by Golden Thread Productions (San Francisco), The Lark Play Development Center (NYC), and Silk Road Rising (Chicago).
Silk Road Rising’s production of Night Over Erzinga is part of a two city rolling world premiere that began at Golden Thread Productions in San Francisco (September 2011) and concludes in Chicago (October/November 2012).
