More About this Project

I’s Twinkle is an epic poem modeled after Dante’s Divine Comedy in its three parts, telling the story of a young man growing up in Reconstruction Era America—an artist figure who travels from the South northward. The style of the work gradually progresses from an epic poem to a play to a folk opera. It incorporates elements of New York and American history, mythology, philosophy, and theology. Whereas Dante’s Divine Comedy leads its protagonist on a spiritual journey, I’s Twinkle is an artistic one, chronicling the punishments and rewards of a life set towards the arts. Listen to the music here.

This workshop is part of the Pipeline PlayLab. Through a year-long series of monthly meetings, the Pipeline PlayLab serves as a workshop for playwrights to build new plays with constructive feedback from other playwrights, directors, and the artistic staff of Pipeline, culminating in staged readings of the developed plays.
