The Alliance for New Music-Theatre joins the Worldwide Ukrainian Play Readings Project featuring music by Ken Burns' collaborator pianist Jacqueline Schwab and directed by Susan Galbraith and Matty Griffiths at the Kay Spiritual Life Center on the campus of American University on September 21, 2023, beginning at 7pm.
