YESTERDAY IRAN/ TODAY IRAQ ~ a new play-reading Friday, December 7th, 7:30pm at The Dramatists Guild, 1501 Broadway, NYC

Dear Friends,
I am excited to invite you to a reading of a new one-act play my company, Soul Strata Theater, has been working on entitled YESTERDAY IRAN/ TODAY IRAQ by L. S. Goldberg. The play-reading should last a little over a half-hour long - please join us afterward to share your feedback in this critical phase in the development of our work. We would love to add your voice to the discussion.


The date and time:
December 7th, 7:30pm 
In the Frederick Loewe Theater at the Dramatists Guild of America
1501 Broadway, Suite 701
www.dramatistsguild.com
Seating is limited.  Please RSVP to yiti.rsvp@soulstrata.net

~About YESTERDAY IRAN/ TODAY IRAQ~
On the eve of his first deployment to Iraq, Pvt. Steven “Stippy” Goodman discovers a mysterious box of letters from his grandfather, Lt. Chester A. “Grumpa” Goodman. The letters hail from a time when Grumpa was also in the military, helping to service and maintain a vital supply route to the Russians through the Persian Gulf region during the second World War. At first arrogant and dismissive, Stippy finds himself reluctantly piecing back together a map that may lead him, across an ocean of time, to find relevance his grandfathers’ experiences – as Grumpa and Stippy “war” over the changing face of war.

Soul Strata Theater is dedicated to awakening and nurturing human compassion.  We also develop innovative approaches to the expression of visual language - including sign language, as well as digital media.

Doors will open for Friday’s class at Pearl Studios at 10am. You’ll have an opportunity to stretch & ask questions for a half hour before and after class.

Wisdom Recalled on the Advent of the School Year

"When entering into a relationship with an institution, it is imperative to make friends as soon as possible with the security, custodial, and cafeteria staff - they control your quality of life."

- Max Tzu, “The Art of Slaying Debt”. 

"Ha. Ha. Ha. You’re laughing now— but pretty soon - you’ll be crawling down the street, on your hands and knees, with your mouth wide open, begging for more:  welcome to showbiz, kid."
- Jeff Weiss’ daily greeting to me, fresh out of Juilliard, working on HENRY V in the park.

To Affirm. A Beginning.
