Like Air: a poetry play | Rehearsal

  • Arts Letters & Numbers | The Barn 1543 Burden Lake Road Averill Park, NY, 12018 United States (map)

Our current Artists in Residence Liz Gallo and Dane Swan are opening up their rehearsal of the poetry play Like Air, for the public on Friday August 18th at 7:00pm. We are all curious to see what they have been working on in the barn this week!

Like Air follows the lives of Olivia and Adam (Adyemo) as they go through transitional moments. Olivia is coming out of a relationship with her common law husband, an alcoholic, and is leaving a job where she had to deal with an abusive boss. Adam is addicted to pain medication and marijuana when he’s arrested for being a drug dealer. Adam learns that he was falsely accused of being a drug dealer by his ex-girlfriend and former best friend who were stealing prescription drugs from him. By chance, Olivia and Adam meet each other while going through this period of their lives.
