"Voices of Nashville" to play in North Nashville in October

The Tennessee Women's Theater Project sent me the following announcement regarding cultural events here in the North Nashville community (Z. Alexander Looby Theater, 2301 Rosa L. Parks Blvd, Nashville 37228), which in the spirit of community service, I commend to you:

Tennessee Women’s Theater Project offers two firsts and an eighth for its 2013-14 season: the world premiere of a play commissioned by the company, followed by the regional premiere of the 2013 Tony® Award winner for Best Play and the 8th annual Women’s Work Festival of performing and visual arts works created by women.

The season kicks off with Voices of Nashville, by local playwrights Christine Mather and Sara Sharpe. This original documentary theater piece explores the experience of immigration in our region through the eyes of Nashville’s new Americans. The show runs 11 performances over three weekends at Nashville’s Looby Theater, from October 4 through October 20.

Inspiration for the commissioning of Voices of Nashville came from the "dramatic increase in Nashville's immigrant population" and it represents an attempt to help Nashvillians meet one another in "the non-threatening environment of the theater".
