Join History Matters/Back to the Future for the award presentation and staged reading of the inaugural Judith Barlow Prize winning one-act play Her Own Devices by Catholic University of America student Lindsay Adams livestreamed for the global, commons-based peer-produced HowlRound TV network at howlround.tv on Friday 29 April at 7 p.m. EDT (New York) / 6 p.m. CDT (Chicago) / 4 p.m. PDT (Los Angeles) / 23:00 GMT.
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.
The evening will be hosted by award-winning actor and women's advocate Kathleen Chalfant and the brilliant Jade King Carroll will be directing the reading.
