Dill: An Immersive Screenplay Reading and Discussion

March 19 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm


Join Revolutionary Spaces for a live reading of the screenplay Dill, a story inspired by real people and real events on the Cape Ann Shore in Massachusetts during a tumultuous time on the cusp of the American Revolutionary War. The protagonist is an enslaved woman named Dill, short for Deliverance, who despite her strong-willed character and drive for independence, finds herself in a love triangle between two men, one possibly more suitable, but her heart longs for the forbidden fruit.

The reading will include a cast of live actors for a fully immersive experience, as well as a four-piece live musical accompaniment and live foley sound effects. The performance will be reminiscent of 1930s radio programming and will transport the audience to another world and time. After our reading, local historians will join the cast on stage for a discussion and Q&A about the historical context surrounding the film. This will truly be a night you don’t want to miss!

Dill: An Immersive Screenplay Reading and Discussion is free and open to the public. Pre-registration is highly encouraged. Doors will open at 6:30 PM and the program will begin at 7:00 PM. Light snacks and refreshments will be provided.

This program is made possible by the generous support of The Lowell Institute.
