Event Details

The Tent by Megan Furniss

Live Zoom Reading (Running time: 75 minutes)

The Tent is set in a tiny rural town somewhere in South Africa. A mixed couple—Ruth is white, and Samson is black—pitch their tent alongside the local gas station and store in the middle of the night. Their appearance rocks the town and splits it down the middle, with fear, racism, hatred, and violence at odds with kindness and healing. The Tent concerns the ‘other’ and the phobia that it sparks.
