“SPARK” is a new play by Latina playwright Caridad Svich. The reading is being done in collaboration with multiple venues to honor veterans of wars recent (Iraq, Afghanistan) and past, and to promote spiritual healing.

With this reading, Hawaiʻi joins university, community, and professional theatres across the US and abroad who will present free script-in-hand readings of “SPARK” in the month of November 2012. Theatres in over twenty states have scheduled readings, as well as a theatre group in Australia. (For a full list of theatres, see

Spark is a play about three sisters living in the U.S. caught in the mess of a recent war’s aftermath. It is about what happens when soldiers come home, when women of little economic means must find a way to make do and carry on, and the strength, ultimately, of family. A contemporary U.S. story of faith, love, war, trauma, and a bit of healing.

The cast will include UHM faculty and students, and after the reading there will be a panel response and discussion.
