Echo Theatre presents Echo Reads: The Great Lonely Roamer & The Night That Changed Everything
As part of their Echo Reads series, Echo Theatre will present The Great Lonely Roamer & The Night That Changed Everything by CQ (Christina Quintana), a queer, cross-genre writer with Cuban and Louisiana roots.
Only two polar bears are left on the planet. On New Year’s Eve, one bear searches suburban Texas for a new, air-conditioned home, while his sister attempts to track him down in New York City. A gun-toting trucker tries to race his pregnant wife to the hospital. A first date laced with supercharged marijuana takes a turn at a police stop. A wild night ensues that will affect the future of an entire species.
In Echo Reads, directors lightly rehearse readings of plays with professional actors who carry their scripts as they perform for the audience. After the Zoom reading, the audience is invited to stay and discuss the play with the actors, director, and Echo creatives in a casual conversation online.
