ANPF Fall Festival Reading of A LONG TIME COMING

By Weston Gaylord
Directed by Holly L. Derr

“A Long Time Coming” tells two intertwining stories of one family: a novelist in 2024 who puts his mother’s life story into words, and his great-granddaughter and her son in 2114, who journey from a California farm to a Norwegian forest and discover a secret that has waited a century to come to light. The play features an amazing cast that includes Liisa Ivary*, Rafael Untalan *, Michaela Jose, Ellen D. Williams*, Teo Briones, and Jennifer Lanier*. Stage directions read by Emma Richardson.

Weston Gaylord is a playwright and librettist based in Los Angeles. He has been a member of the Geffen Writers’ Room and The Vagrancy Playwrights Group, a winner of Humanitas PLAY LA, and a finalist for the Seven Devils Playwrights Conference and the O’Neill National Musical Theatre Conference.
