ArLynn Leiber Presser’s Remembrance opens in six days on Friday, Jan. 29, at 7:30 p.m. at the Noyes Cultural Arts Center in Evanston. Buy your tickets today before they sell out for the intimate theater space. Shows also take place Saturday, Jan. 30 at 7:30 and Sunday at 3:30.
Come on opening night to hear Presser talk about the show with the audience after the performance is done.
Presser, who is also directing the play, has 35 published books to her credit, countless short stories, seven plays and a plethora of alternative Christmas pageants.
She also holds a law degree from Northwestern University and has two sons — one a filmmaker, the other a musician.
Presser notes that she is “grateful beyond measure to all the people who have put time and talent into this project which is the dearest to my heart because every character is or was at one time a real person in my life. This is how I remember them.”
She also has a request for audience members. As you enter the theater, there will be Remembrance post-it notes you can use to write down the names of those you have loved and lost.
“Please take some time to fill out the post-it notes with people you remember because they need to be,” says Presser.
