Alabaster

Alabaster by Audrey Cefaly

It’s July 12, 2019, and we’re just outside Alabaster, Alabama.

A noted photographer sets out to explore the topography of “scars.” Her journey lands her in the mysterious realm of an undiscovered folk artist hiding away in North Alabama. 

A beautiful new play that explores what it means to be truly “seen,” how we pick up the pieces, how we move forward and how we heal.  Narrated by a goat.

10 words or less: Show our scars together.

Running time: 2h 5m including one 15 minute intermission.

Rated: PG-13.
