The Fled Collective presents a free public reading of Deliver: Letters to the Motherland from a Foreign Body, written by Liz Morgan and directed by Zoey Martinson, May 7 at 7 PM in The Pete at The Flea Theater in New York City. The event marks the group's first developmental workshop.
Deliver follows three characters: a young, Black doctor practicing medicine in rural America; her patient, a pregnant woman with a dark past; and a mysterious foreign body who must journey to a new world. All three feel unsafe where they call home, and the work takes audiences into their experiences in an homage to immigrants.
The cast stars Storm Thomas, Muge Karagulle, Marcus Jones, Lori Laing, Georgia Kate Cohen, Chris Dunlop, and Dolores Avery Pereira.
"The play is as full of heart as it is of longing as it explores a desire for connectivity and finding a sense of belonging in the world," says Katherine Kovner, artistic director of The Playwrights Realm, in a statement.
Deliver is the first staged program The Fled is producing as the Flea’s Key Resident Company, a reparative grant and partnership offered to a nascent company that centers Black, Brown and Queer artists.
