Print Story | Email Story
ADAMS, Mass. — The Adams Theater will present to the Berkshires a staged reading of "IODINE" by writer/director Michelle Joyner, adapted from the novel of Haven Kimmel, at 3 p.m. on July 13 and 14. 
This reading is part of the Adams Incubator's Residency Program, which invites independent artists and collectives to use our physical space to develop bold, original works that promote cross-cultural and cross-disciplinary collaborations.
According to a press release: 
"IODINE" is a psychological puzzle exploring the life of an unconventional college senior. Tracey Sue Pennington is living a highly functional if impoverished existence after running away from her abusive home, and is forced to face her painful past when she falls in love with a much older man. A traumatic childhood involving exorcisms, alien abduction and a fragmented reality slowly comes into focus as this young woman's heart begins to open.
Each of the two public readings will be followed by a talkback with clinical social worker Abigail Reifsnyder, an expert in the field of childhood trauma. Robert Egan, the former artistic head of The Mark Taper Forum (LA) and The Ojai Playwrights Conference (CA) will moderate. North Adams-based artist David Lane will collaborate with puppetry design.
Reserve your tickets at Recommended for ages 13+.
