Multitudes – A One Man Play about Walt Whitman

November 8, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Multitudes – A One Man Play about Walt Whitman – Friday, November 8 at 7 p.m.

Multitudes is an original one man play about the great gay father of American poetry, Walt Whitman. The play was authored by Valerie and Kim Nuzzo of Zephyr Stage, Fruita, Colorado; it runs a little over an hour with no intermission and addresses Whitman’s thoughts on the democratic ideals of inclusion and the importance of every voice, slavery, women’s rights, his fondness for Abraham Lincoln, his sorrow, turmoil and PTSD around his service as a volunteer nurse in Washington, D.C. during the Civil War. All issues being faced in our own time in one form or another. The nation is celebrating the bicentennial of Walt Whitman’s birth.
