MMNT New Works Program presents a livestreamed professional reading of Maypearl, a new play in development. Originally commissioned as an adaptation of Friedrich Dürrenmatt's 1956 tragicomedy The VisitMaypearl has expanded through weeks of collaborative company work into a rich and timely exploration of love, loss, redemption, community and social justice. Join us in the play-making process as this work in progress receives its public premiere. Featuring guest artist Lowell Bartholomee, a little country music, dancing puppets, a healthy dose of controversy and a whole lot of heart. 

Maypearl is recommended for mature audiences.
