The play is being developed as part of the Middle East America: A National New Plays Initiative, an endeavor uniting the Lark, Golden Thread Productions in San Francisco and Silk Road Theatre Project in Chicago.
Daniella Topol (Monster at the Door, Pool Boy, Lascivious Something) will direct Night Over Erzinga, which will continue through June 12 at the Lark.
The cast will include Mari H. Bijimenian, Matt Boston, Teddy Cañez, Gerardo Rodriguez, Juliet Tanner, Alok Tewari, Ching Valdes-Aran and Brigitte Viellieu-Davis.
According to the Lark, "Night Over Erzinga tells the story of how an Armenian and Latin American family can reach through time, reclaim their stories, and bring their children 'home.' Spanning two continents and three generations, this memory play reunites ancestors with the living, as they all yearn to make peace with the past."
