In observance of National LGBTQ+ Pride Month, Aria Creative Productions will present a staged reading of Heart-Land by Leslie Powell a Tucson-based playwright and a co-producer of the North Shore Readers Collaborative Theater.

Heart-Land is the psychological story of Jackie, a young professional who falls in love with Celeste, a woman running from her past and an abusive relationship. When Jackie receives a call from her former fiance, the exchange puts the couple’s relationship in the balance.

This is Aria Creative Productions’ second staged reading with its new artistic director, Jade Esteban Estrada, who joined the company on May 9.

The reading will take place at 7 p.m. Thursday, July 21, 2022 at Alamo City Studios. Jade Esteban Estrada will direct. Alamo City Studios is located at 1113 Houston Street in San Antonio, Texas. Seating is limited. Face masks are recommended. General admission tickets are $10. Tickets may be purchased at the door or online through Brown Paper Tickets.

The New Play Development Series is an on-going initiative and Heart-land is the fifth installments. The purpose of the program is to give playwrights an opportunity to further develop new works.  Each official selection of the series will receive two rehearsals before the staged reading and an audience feedback session. “For a playwright, a staged reading is an important preparatory step in the creative process,” said Estrada. “Last month’s reading of Backstage Fairytale by Michael John McGoldrick was an artistically rewarding experience. I am equally thrilled about this month’s selection. “The purpose of this program is to bring more fully developed plays to our stages,” said Estrada. “When a great, meaningful play has an opening night, it is likely that the play had a table reading, a staged reading, and one or more workshop development performances. In my own experience as a playwright, I get a better picture of what my play is about after I present it in front of a live audience.”
