About the play: Benjamin is a world-renowned music producer living the dream. However, his life becomes a wreck whenever his sister, Averie, asks him to give the eulogy at his estranged mother’s funeral. Charles Jackson Jr.’s Elusive is an experimental dramatic fantasy about the effect that having an absent mother has on a child.


This event is a part of Spark Fest, our annual Summer celebration of groundbreaking and exciting new art.


This is a developmental reading, meaning you’ll watch performers act from the script. This reading is the culmination of playwright, director, and actors spending time reading and rehearsing this play, making changes, and presenting to the public for further feedback. You are part of the process!
