Join us for a staged reading of “Frozen Masterpieces” by Elena Naskova, directed by Scott Dittman. Part of the FIRST DRAFT staged reading series presented by the Edmonds Driftwood Players and Driftwood After Dark.

Frozen Masterpieces is a story about our struggle for permanency against the destructive forces of time. Edward is an artist who has chosen tattoo art as his favorite art form because of its permanency. He is deeply captivated by the idea of putting his artwork on a “living, bleeding, twitching canvas”, and having it remain there for a lifetime. Valerie is a young woman who is diagnosed with breast cancer and is searching for a way to express her pain and grief. As things unravel and lives fall apart, new beginnings emerge, but our tattoos remain as proof that change and tattoos are the only permanent things in life.

Runtime: 80-minutes without an intermission

*Trigger warning: this play contains adult language and some violence.
