I did a recent online post about Al Letson’s up and coming play “Summer in Sanctuary” It’s coming to MOCA June 1st-3rd. I think the concept is pretty interesting how he went with intentions of teaching kids at a summer camp but came out learning a few lessons of his own.
In case you don’t know who Al Letson is, he’s a Jacksonville native that’s made quite the name for himself. He’s well-known in the spoken word community and also does work with playwriting and acting. He is also the host of the NPR show called “State of the Reunion.” He visits different cities within the US and discovers what makes them unique.
Check out the post I did for more details about the Summer in Sanctuary play:
