Summit Performance Indianapolis presents
A "Community Conversation" one-act play by local playwright Paige Scott
Sleep Away is a one-act performance about the kindness of strangers, and women's journeys of resilience and hope. Nina (Shawnte Gaston) welcomes stranger, Reese (Brittany Magee), into her home for a brief respite. During their time together, they discover they have more in common than they anticipated, and find a newfound trust in humanity. Sleepaway, directed by Jolene Mentink Moffatt and written by local playwright Paige Scott, is based on the true stories of several Indianapolis women's journeys in recovery. The performance will be immediately followed by a moderated community conversation.
Up Next at Summit
June 30th, 7pm
Mark your calendar for August 13-15 at the Allen Whitehill Clowes Amphitheater on Marian University campus! Summit presents a staged reading of THE CONVENT by Jessica Dickey, directed by Summit's own Kelsey Leigh Miller.
"The Convent is a toothy comedy about desire, devotion, and the mystery of intrinsic divinity."
"Jessica Dickey...has written a moving and poetic new play called The Convent about women on retreat. Like all of Dickey’s plays, it is a fierce combination of intellect and emotion: a gathering place for smart, interesting people stuck in difficult circumstances to make choices that will break their hearts, and ours."
--Anna Ziegler, The Brooklyn Rail
Summit stands with BLM and BIPOC
Black Lives Matter.
Summit Performance Indianapolis stands with Black Americans and all Indigenous and other People of Color. We detest and denounce racism in all of its explicit and implicit forms. Summit’s values are to increase the representation of our country’s diverse population on and behind the stage, promote equity in the arts, connect with our community, and inspire community-wide dialogue around pertinent social issues, and we will continue our current efforts toward these aims. However, we recognized that we have not done enough, and acknowledge that racism and the horrific legacy of slavery continue to produce devastating consequences. We are seeking literature, education, and calls to action to further our commitment toward this critical cause.
