Hi Friends:

Please find below more information about a play written by a blind playwright from Maryland which can now be seen weekly in online performances. I posted about this last week, but the below email has more information than I had at the time.

Subject: [Greater-Baltimore] Play about blindness

Some of you have met Linda Wellman who lives in Abingdon Maryland.
She has become blind in the past couple of years and is learning about the Federation.  She was given the opportunity to write and submit a
10-minute play about vision by a small local theater group.   the
theme, anything related to any type of vision, was pre-chosen by the group last year for this summer’s productions.  Ten submissions were selected for on line production and ten were chosen for on line readings.  Linda’s, called The Unseen Truth, was selected for a live reading on Aug. 9 with Zoom repeats for a few dates.

Due to a complicated process and accessibility problems it has been difficult to get tickets, the Zoom link, which is free.  Consequently there are now only 3 choices left but the play producer has said he will send the link and information to anyone who contacts him directly with their name, email, and the name and date/time they would like.
Each reading is about 10 minutes and I believe you will need to listen to all of them during the stream—I am simply unaware of the precise scheduling in each block although Linda’s play is listed sixth so that may be the schedule.  If you would like to hear her play, with Linda herself performing the lead character, please contact below as soon as you can.

The remaining dates/times are:

Aug 22 at 5pm
Aug 20 and 23 at 8pm

Please email The event organizer:

Also, although it has never been fully accessible to order tickets, here is a link directly to the event page:
