HER OWN DEVICES
 By Lindsay Adams
Directed by Jade King Carroll

Inspired by Mary Chase's Pulitzer Prize winning Harvey, Her Own Devices shares the story of Madeleine, a young girl with a rare autoimmune disorder that forces her to spend her life in a lab, as doctors run endless tests. She copes with the help of her imaginary friend Robot, and ultimately must decide whether or not to leave the only home she's known.
A wine and cheese reception will follow the play reading. 
The reading is free and will be live streamed on Howlround.com/tv

HISTORY MATTERS/BACK TO THE FUTURE promotes the study and production of women's plays of the past in colleges and universities and theatres throughout the country and encourage responses to those plays from contemporary women playwrights.
