Evidence of Things Unseen

Wednesday, July 31st | 8pm @ The Road on Lankershim
Written By Katie Forgette
Directed By John Levey

Evidence of Things Unseen is an intimate family story that deals with alcoholism, suicide, imperfect contrition, the ivory-billed woodpecker, and man’s endless search for redemption. The play toggles between grim and funny as it asks the question:  How does a person go about forgiving the unforgivable?
