U of I Presents Free Virtual Reading of ‘Her Sister’
January 21, 2021
MOSCOW, Idaho — Jan. 21, 2021 — What happens to those whose stories are never told? The play “Her Sister” explores identity in the face of loss and meaning in suffering though the mind and memory of Margot Frank, the older sister of perhaps the most famous Holocaust victim, Anne Frank.
Written by Kendra Phillips, a Master of Fine Arts playwriting candidate at the University of Idaho, “Her Sister” will be performed as a staged reading as part of “First Bite,” a new play workshop series by the U of I Department of Theatre Arts.
Free virtual readings of “Her Sister” are at 6 p.m., Jan. 29-30 and 2 p.m. Jan 31.
“First Bite” provides emerging U of I playwrights the chance to receive development support in the form of staged readings, workshops and premiere productions and creates a unique space for playwrights to collaborate with director, cast and crew and the audience in the journey of preparing a work for the stage.
Appearing in “Her Sister” are Tylor Telford, Zach Haas, Lauren Welch, Emma Blonda, Victoria Zenner and Emily Nunes, all students within the College of Letters, Arts and Social Sciences. The reading is directed by Jennifer Hughes, a Master of Fine Arts directing candidate.
