Serenity Hill started life as a play, by Charlottesville playwright Larry Goldstein, that was workshopped and developed in the Hamner Theater’s VPSI (Virginia Playwrights and Screenwriters Initiative.) It was ready for a fully staged production when the pandemic hit. Without losing momentum the project became Serenity Hill in the Pandemic, a web series of Zoom calls to and from the residents and staff at Serenity Hill. You can watch both Season 1 and Season 2 by clicking on the link below. We are proud to tell the stories of a largely unheard population, our nation’s elders who live in residential facilities, the folks who love them and those who provide daily care. These facilities have been hit hard by the coronavirus. Help the Hamner Theater tell these stories and keep making art.
(And please consider a tax-deductible donation to the Hamner Theater to allow us to continue telling these and other stories and to continue making art!)
