The Brick – A Work in Progress Reading
October 21$5 – $30
The Brick presents
by Caridad Svich
October 21, 2022
“A long time ago a group of men sat in a room. They created a document that would change the world forever. This document was called The Brick.
This is their story, even if they will not always appear in it, because you could say their story became a version of the world.”
The Brick is a fantasia and play/installation by Caridad Svich. It looks at the world at its breaking point. This is a work in progress reading performed by Svich.
This reading will take place over Zoom. Ticket buyers will be sent a link via email on the day of the reading. Ticket buyers will also be provided with a password protected video of the reading that can be viewed for two weeks, in the event they can not attend the reading live.
