Egg & Spoon Theatre Collective will start rehearsals in October for the production of Zabelle. The show will run in New York City’s Access Theater November 14th-17th.
It is Zabelle Chasbanian’s seventy-fifth or seventy-sixth birthday – no one quite knew for sure. While her descendants gather for a surprise party, memories of life as a refugee during the Armenian Genocide reemerge. With a family struggling to survive amidst an ethnic cleansing, Zabelle serves as a powerful reminder of the gift of stories and the need to keep telling them.
Based on the novel by Nancy Kricorian, Zabelle’s original production was at Syracuse University in 2015. It was adapted and directed by Leslie Noble, and devised with Sarineh Garapetian, Julián Garnik, Catherine Giddings, and Lindsey Newton.
