The 6:30 PM reading, directed by Daniel Barnz, benefits Fountain House, an internationally recognized organization dedicated to improving the lives of people living with mental illness.
Karen Croner and Jacki Lyden created the script for this performance. Susan Cartsonis produces. The director, producer and writers of this staged reading are also collaborating to bring "Daughter of the Queen of Sheba" to the big screen.
"Daughter of the Queen of Sheba," according to press notes, recounts Lyden's experience "growing up with a colorful and dramatic mother living with manic depression."
Fountain House is one of the world’s leading mental health models, providing employment, education and housing opportunities to people living with serious mental illness. Visit www.fountainhouse.org.
Proceeds from "Daughter of the Queen of Sheba" will benefit Fountain House with support from NPR.
