Sunday, July 28 @ 6:30 PM

Featuring Bonnie Agan, Roxanne Fay
and Monica Merryman

Tracing the life-long friendships of three Southern women beginning in the Depression era and continuing through the early years of the new century, Lark Eden offers a poetic exploration of the ties that bind us together as tightly as family, and as surely as love. From frog catching girls with skinned knees to world wizened grandmothers, Lark Eden follows these three women through personal trials and victories no less daunting than the historical tribulations that provide the backdrop to these everyday American lives. Natalie Symons lives in Tampa with her husband and canine son. She is the author of a forthcoming novel and holds a degree in drama therapy from State University of New York, Empire State College. American Stage audiences last saw Natalie in The Foreigner.

“If you’ve ever wondered about the strange shape life tends to take over many decades, you’ll want to see Lark Eden, Natalie Symons’ loving portrayal of three female friends from childhood to old age… Symons captures the feel of human experience so expertly, she provokes us to just the sort of philosophizing she and her characters eschew…there’s another fine playwright in the Tampa Bay area. Her name is Symons, and she’s truly talented.” -Mark Leib, Creative Loafing Tampa

“You may have heard the generic histories of similar "salt of the earth" American women countless times before, but never so respectfully or so affectingly.”

“It is truly a tale of great happiness and great sorrow that every person can relate to, young or old, man or woman.” -Tampa Bay Examiner

“Surrounded by a chorus of sobs and a solemn wiping-away of tears, the nearest I’ve yet experienced to OUR TOWN…a portrait of an unconditional love, and a bit of an exploration of 20th century American history and life.” -John E. Allis Seattle Star
