    Theater: Cherry Lane Theatre / 38 Commerce Street, New York, NY, 10014

    Synopsis: 

    Sharon Washington plays nearly 20 characters in her own true story of growing up in the custodial apartment of a Manhattan library, where her father toils night and day to load the fiery furnace with coal, or in the eyes of a fanciful little bookworm, to feed the dragon. Shrouded in family mystery, Sharon’s story boldly examines how both the power of forgiveness and her lifelong love for the written word have helped her battle dragons of all forms.

To anyone who feels most at home surrounded by things to read, it feels like an invitation: Want to hear a story? Yes, please.
