"Ethics on Stage" is a collaborative series by the Alliance Theatre and the Ethics & the Arts Program at the Emory Center for Ethics. The series aims to promote insightful discussion about ethical issues addressed in theatrical productions by providing space for dialogue both before (scene presentations & discussions held the week before the premiere) and after (post-show discussions).
About "Hospice" & "Pointing at the Moon": Alliance Theatre Mellon Playwright in Residence Pearl Cleage offers two one-act plays separated by 30 years but connected by the presence of Jenny Anderson. Jenny's longing to understand her mother in Hospice has become the center of her life in Pointing at the Moon. As the world changes around her, Jenny must decide what she knows for sure and find a way to pass it on. Hospice was first performed in 1983 and was honored with five AUDELCO awards for achievement Off Broadway. Taken together, these two plays offer a rare glimpse of the playwright in passionate dialogue with her younger self. Come join the conversation.
