15 GLIMPSES INTO WHAT COMES NEXT...IS AN ELDERS COMPANY AUDIO PERFORMANCE DIRECTED BY CHERYL MARTIN WITH SOUND DESIGN BY ANNIE MAY FLETCHER. 

Back in January, 14 Elders Writers worked on Zoom, with playwright and poet Amanda Dalton to create 14 short radio plays responding to the title 15 Glimpses into What Comes Next…

During March and April, 16 Elders Performers joined director Cheryl Martin on zoom, to explore the scripts together and to create a 15th piece responding to the same title 15 Glimpses into What Comes Next...

We are delighted to share the result of this incredible work with audiences and invite you to take a moment and immerse yourself in some original audio drama. All 15 pieces are performed by members of our Elders Company, Young Company and two of our Local Exchange Ambassadors, with guest appearance by CONOR GLEAN in the role of Frederick Douglass.
