Lisa D'Amour Wins OBIE, PearlDamour Leads Workshop and Performs Milton at ATHE 2013

Milton is a monologue stitched together from dozens of interviews conducted in five different cities named Milton across the U.S., performed against the backdrop of video footage of the sky over each Milton. What do you dream of when you look at the sky? What is someone across the United States from you dreaming right now? This work-in-process excerpt features a monologue devised from visits to three Miltons, performed by our very own conference participants! Read more, and find out how YOU can participate in the performance of MILTON.
