Post Date:01/07/2019 1:43 PM

The Drama Center of City Arts and Events presents the 2019 New Play Project winner Starbright by Sean David Robinson at 8 pm January 17-19 and 2 pm, January 20, in the Stephen D. Hyers Theater at the Greensboro Cultural Center, 200 N. Davie St. Performances are free with a suggested donation of $10. The Saturday, January 19 performance will feature a talk back and reception with the playwright. Starbright kicks off the 17th annual Greensboro Fringe Festival.

Directed by Drama Center Director Todd Fisher, Starbright tells the story of Grace, an astronomer who lost her young daughter Abby nearly a year ago. As Grace’s life spins out of control, Abby appears to her and begins making bold predictions about the movements of the cosmos. Grace must determine if her daughter’s appearance is a sign of her dwindling sanity, or proof that there’s more to the universe than even she understands. Robinson is a playwright, actor and photographer who was born in Winston-Salem and has lived in Asheville since 2000.
