As part of their Echo Reads series, Echo Theatre will present House by Natalie Nicole Dressel.

This play was written as a biography by Dressel, an actress/playwright from Muskegon, Michigan. The coming of age story follows a trans-woman as she unwinds the many twisted threads of her life: her mother is manic, her new step-dad is a con-man, and the ghost of her dead father won’t stop re-arranging the furniture.

The play weaves therapy, horror, Hamlet, and late-night talk shows together into a meta-theatrical examination of Penny’s continually evolving relationship with her mother and how the past can - quite literally - haunt you.

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.
