Saturday, December 19, 2020
Presented as a staged reading.
The tumultuous world of college athletics can strip one of all normalcy and self identity. Mali, a collegiate basketball star, is trying to navigate her sudden want to withdraw from the limelight and walk into the light of who she truly is; the problem is, she doesn’t know who that is. This premiere tells the story of her life, her acceptance, her trials, and most importantly, her triumphs. Will the journey break her, or will she emerge stronger than ever, ready to conquer life and all it brings?
Transition is presented as part of Asheville Community Theatre’s Artistic Horizons program, a program that gives local artists the opportunity to pursue new creative paths in the theatre. Artistic Horizons features original work by new, emerging, or established writers who are expanding their craft to include playwriting, or productions helmed by first time directors who want to workshop a piece before committing to a full performance run.
