As part of the Autry's Native Voices First Look series, which showcases works in progress by Native American playwrights, Jaisey Bates presents a staged reading of her new play The Day We Were Born.
The Autry website describes the play:
Two Iñupiat boys born the same day and raised as brothers are activated with the Alaskan National Guard for service in Iraq. A spirit woman guides the lost soul of an Iñupiat veteran through the boys' lives from childhood to war, seeking a way to bring them all together before it's too late.A discussion will follow the reading.
