March 22 27 – 1PM (EEST) – Concert Reading of Fulbright playwright, Dr. David Crespy’s La Susona – Old New Philosophy Building, Room 417, Aristotle University campus.
Please join me for an in-person, concert reading of my ten-minute play LA SUSONA, sponsored by the School of English, on Wednesday, March 22, Monday, March 27, 13:00 (1PM EEST) at the Atrium Room 417 of the Old New Philosophy Building on the Aristotle University campus. The script is part of my play cycle Mi Corazón Español Vive Ahora En Grecia: Six Plays of Sephardic Spain & Greece, and is my primary creative research project for my 2022-23 Fulbright Award to Spain and Greece. This cycle of plays focuses on the Spanish roots of the Jewish communities of Thessaloniki and Veria.
The reading will be cast with student performers from Aristotle University. For the first fifteen minutes, I’ll present on my writing process, how I develop the history of these unique and important Greek Sephardic Jewish communities into dramatic literature, and this will be followed by the reading of the play, with a question-and-answer period to follow.
