Eagle Project presents a pair of new short plays, 'Wide Blossoms' and 'Vanishing Point,' about Hurricane Katrina's impact on two vibrant but marginalized communities in southern Louisiana. More…
In Elise Marenson's 'Wide Blossoms,' a young African-American woman reveals a secret to a white lawyer and learns that, in the end, we are all connected to one another.
'Vanishing Point,' written by Lakota playwright Larissa FastHorse, is inspired by the Biloxi-Chitimacha-Choctaw tribe, America's first official climate refugees.
"In their very simple yet effective ways, both plays show the beauty of quiet resilience and the strength of human bonds. To deny the connections between various, seemingly different groups of people leads to hatred and pain. To recognize it, which the playwrights and the director of 'Lost Voices' have made easier, brings strength to people who are willing to stand together." Full Review
"All of the acting is stellar and both casts support each other's characters seamlessly, in a way that makes the audience feel like they have walked in to the bar or into the disappearing community. One easily forgets that they are attending theatre and that they are not, indeed, alongside these well-written characters...'Lost Voices' demonstrates and educates the audience that we must not lose sight of the fact that it's not 'save the planet,' it's 'save the people.'"

"Tension fails to build as the peril escalates; the performance’s tone doesn’t vary much. The production also ignores a critical stage direction calling for the cousins’ space to shrink discernibly. Still, 'Vanishing Point' is the more satisfying half of the program, which begins with Elise Marenson’s one-act 'Wide Blossoms'...The most eloquent aspect of 'Lost Voices' is Edward T. Morris’s poetic set." Full Review
