Spark is a play about three sisters living in the US caught in the mess of a recent war’s aftermath. It is about what happens when soldiers come home, when women of little economic means must find a way to make do and carry on, and the strength, ultimately, of family. A contemporary US story of faith, love, war, trauma, and a bit of healing.
The Playwrights' Center hosts a reading of this new work by 2012 OBIE Award-winner and member playwright Caridad Svich, one of many such readings being performed at venues nationwide throughout the month of November in advance of Veteran's Day and surrounding the US election.Event Details

Pousada Azul is a quaint, modest guest house overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, amidst the saturated colors of Salvador da Bahia, Brazil. One rainy season in 2002, African American Expats Karen Wallace, self-appointed gatekeeper of Bahian culture and Tobias Walker, her fabulous gay husband, intertwine with their sole guest-Benjamin Douglas, a handsome but evasive New Yorker. They are visited by Karen's best friend Eliciana Santos, a vivacious Baiana who's carrying her first child, whose birth as foretold could possibly heal Karen.
The cast for the Reading includes:
Shá Cage as Karen
Ansa Akyea as Benjamin
Kevin West as Tobias
Hope Cervantes as Eliciana
