PRACTICAL TABLE READ

Pandora's Voodoo poster 081419.jpg

A night featuring DSA Talent, with Writer and Director, Roger Lindley, who has graciously offered to comment on the screenplay and give actors a few tips. 

On Tuesday night, ten of our local actors will read for your pleasure the first half of Natasha Paris's latest screenplay entitled Pandora's Voodoo.

LogLine:

Suffering from a deadly disease, a criminal kidnaps his grandkids to share his truth, while being chased by his daughter and the law.

 

Pandora’s Box is a heartbreaking, thought-provoking film on race and racism (the 1960s versus today), fibromyalgia, forgiveness, death, mysticism, passionate

love, parents’ unconditional love, and a woman’s emancipation.

 

Come listen to your fellow DSA Talent bring to life unique characters:
