Single tickets are now on sale for A Noise Within’s Fall 2013 season. This season the plays are thematically tied by the tireless search to find that which has been lost. Julia Rodriguez Elliott said, “Much of life is about managing loss – and the search to find what we perceive we have lost: the longing for spent youth, the sadness for the unyielding search for a lost child. Sometimes it is re-discovery – the thrill of a romance, a self-deception of great entitlement, or finding a key to a locked mind. We’ve chosen these stories because they all explore values we find precious – love lost, love found, meaning lost and meaning found.”
