American Indian Artists Inc. (AMERINDA) will present the New York Premiere of SOLEDAD by Carolyn Dunn. Directed by John Scott-Richardson, previews for this new play about a young woman’s journey of discovery, reconnection, intrigue, and love begin on January 12 at Theater for the New City with opening night slated for January 14.
A socially awkward high school senior, Soledad “Sunny” Sixkiller, discovers that her father was a prize-winning pow wow singer whose grief over the disappearance of his wife (and Soledad’s mother) has turned him inward. Sunny finds, by accident, her father’s old pow wow tapes and vows to learn his songs in order to bring him back to life.
SOLEDAD stars Jolie Cloutier (Onondaga), Brett Hecksher (Cherokee), Bradley Lewis (Acoma), and Ria Nez (Nahuatl). The production team includes Frances Melgarejo (Production Manager), Taryn Mack (Stage Manager), Alexie Cruz (Assistant Director), and Marlene Pagan Flores (Media).
