Luna Stage will hold a Sunday afternoon "talk back" session after the matinee performance of Carnaval. Reverend Sandye A. Wilson, Rector of the Episcopal Church of St. Andrew & Holy Communion in South Orange will lead discussion.
Carnaval, written by Nikkole Salter, tells the story of three men who leave New York for a Rio de Janeiro getaway. According to the synopsis, "what starts out as a joyride takes an unexpected turn and the three sex tourists find themselves in a situation that will change their friendships and their lives forever."
The play, which has adult themes and language, is at Luna Stage until March 3. However, Rev. Wilson's appearance is a singlar event. Wilson is not the first South Orange woman to lead a talk back session; Anne Fernald did so in the fall, for the production of Vita and Virginia.
Luna Stage is located at:
555 Valley Road, West Orange NJ 07052
A year ago in Brooklyn, two young men mourned the untimely loss of their best friend. In his honor they decided then and there that, despite their differences, no matter where life took them, they would take care of his younger brother and get together on the anniversary of his death to celebrate the life he should have had. So, on a cold day in the winter of 1996, these three twenty-somethings board a plane for Rio De Janeiro for a taste of the good life: sun, fun and, of course, women paid to serve – What better way to pay homage to a fallen friend? But what starts out as a joyride takes an unexpected turn and the three sex tourists find themselves in a situation that will change their friendships and their lives forever.
