Production History

Voices of Nashville

Premieres Oct 4, 2013

Commissioned by TWTP and written by Christine Mather and Sara Sharpe,Voices of Nashville  explores the experience of immigrants in our region through the eyes of these new Americans. TWTP Founder and Artistic Director Maryanna Clarke describes the inspiration this way: “Most people are aware of the explosive growth in the immigrant population of Nashville. Native-born residents are encountering people from all over the planet, and it’s not necessarily a comfortable thing. We see the play as a way of introducing neighbors to neighbors – as humans, and not strangers.” 

An official Artober event, Voices of Nashville is sponsored by HCA/TriStar Health and funded in part by Nissan FoundationTennessee Arts Commission and Metro Nashville Arts Commission.

"Thoughtful and engaging . . . we hear the voices of these new Americans,
ringing out with strength, resilience and courage."
Amy Stumpfl, The Tennessean

Voices of Nashville received its first public workshop reading on opening night of our Seventh Annual Women's Work Festival, May 3, 2013. Over the summer, the creative team worked on Voices, with more interviews, community outreach and engagement helping to shape the final script. A fully staged production opened our 2013-14 season at the Looby Theater from October 4-20, followed by a tour of schools, community centers and social organizations. Our aim is to reach, teach and inspire audiences to see themselves and their new neighbors in new ways. Learn more about the project here.
