PLAY IN THE GARDEN: Tree Confessions by Jenny Lyn Bader starring Kathleen Chalfant

Directed by Jenny Lyn Bader

Starring Kathleen Chalfant

In a landmark study, a scientist learned everything about how trees communicate. — Or did she? One tree tells the story of what really happened. Its words remind us that human beings and plants live in one interconnected ecosystem: We are not alone on this earth. Kathleen Chalfant stars in a reading of Tree Confessions, the world's first solo play from the point of view of a tree. The reading will be followed by Q&A with actress and playwright.

Tree Confessions was originally commissioned by This Is Not a Theatre Co. as a site-specific recorded audio play conceived & directed by E.B. Mee. It premiered in 2021 at the Beuys for Future International Exhibit at the Gallery for Sustainable Art in Berlin.

The playwright has created a new version for live reading expressly for this Guild Hall event.

Produced by Patricia Watt
