TRANSFORMING HEARTS & MINDS ONE PRODUCTION AT A TIME
Transformation Theatre, Inc. shall stimulate, celebrate and enhance the understanding of ourselves and others through live theatre by producing new unpublished plays and adaptations of culturally relevant stories that reflect underrepresented cultures and people in our community and the world in which we live.
Transformation Theatre, Inc. (TT, Inc.) was incorporated as a non-profit company in April 2019 with the long-term goal of providing a venue for collaboration with up-and-coming and established theatre artists at various stages of development of their work. While TT, Inc will focus on original works of social relevance and/or adaptations, we encourage all playwrights to submit their work for consideration. TT, Inc. shall endeavor to promote/commission works from playwrights in the DC/MD/VA region, however, consideration will also be given to writers outside of that area, including those outside of the US.
LAST CATASTROPHIST by David Valdes
Directed by Jenny Male
We are proud to announce our inaugural new play reading! On June 8, 2019, TT, Inc. will present Last Catastrophist by the exceptionally talented David Valdes at Joe's Movement Emporium located at 3309 Bunker Hill Rd, Mt Rainier, MD 20712 . House opens at 5:30 PM. The reading will commence at 6:00 PM and will be followed by drinks and a discussion to include the playwright. The piece will feature Fatima Quander as MARINA and Kelly Renee Armstrong as LUCIA.
Synopsis: Marina, one of the last two climatologists on earth, has hidden herself on the coast of Iceland to escape increasing threats from Eternal Sunshine, a shadowy cabal harassing climate scientists into silence. When Lucia, her one remaining peer, shows up unannounced, a cat-and-mouse game ensues. Are they allies? Enemies? Who works for whom? Last Catastrophist draws on climate science and real life events to imagine life on the brink of extinction.
David Valdes' plays have been produced across the US and abroad, most recently with Actor's Theatre of Charlotte, Mixed Blood, Borderlands, Milagros, and Boulder Ensemble Theatre Company. His plays have appeared in the Humana Festival, New York International Fringe Festival, Portland Stage Little Festival of the Unexpected, and New York Theatre Workshop Thursday Studio. Currently, he is collaborating with Company One on Boston (un)Documented, a nonfiction theatre project about the immigrant experience.
