HUNGER FOR PARADISE
by Eric M. Martin
Winner of the 2010 AVT New American West Play Competition. Produced by arrangement with Eric M. Martin, Quartz Hill, CA.
AVT is pleased to bring to the stage the premiere of this new, character-driven drama by local playwright Eric M. Martin. Set in the modern day, this play explores the hunger for something new that often drives us to break for greener pastures… only to discover that, sometimes, the emptiness inside from which we run cannot be filled so easily. Rather, it pursues us despite all superficial remedies — and instead of looking forward in the way we hoped, life sometimes leaves us to wonder might have been.
STARRING: Kevin J. Hogan, Melissa Martin, Will Nicolai, Stevelon Mims, and Juan Juarez.
AUG 19-28, 2011
Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm, Sundays at 4pm at the Antelope Valley Winery (20th W at Avenue M in Lancaster).
