Ingram New Works Playwright Kenley Smith's Empires of Eternal Void Livestream
Did you miss the 2011-2012 Ingram New Works Festival? You are in luck! Nashville Rep partnered with #NEWPLAYTV to livestream and archive the festival. Below is the archived copy of Kenley Smith's Empires of Eternal Void.
What is Empires of Eternal Void about? Here is Kenley Smith's synopsis of the play:
Locked in a transparent cell with a seemingly delusional young soldier, a military chaplain attempts to learn the truth about a violent, shocking crime. But as the session unfolds, punctuated by threats and even torture, the chaplain's sense of purpose and reality begins to shift. Are the prisoner's conversations with God the ravings of a disturbed soul, or the revelations of an enlightened one? Is the crime an act of brutality, or of grace? Who really runs the operation, and is there a method to the madness?
Update: Empires of Eternal Void has been chosen out of 550 scripts to be one of five MainStage plays at the 2013 Great Plains Theatre Conference. We are extremely excited for Kenley and we will keep you posted on the journey ahead!
