In 1985, Bernard Pomerance wrote Melons, a play concerned with the diverse meanings of the land, the laws of ownership and communal reconstruction for the indigenous peoples of the US. In light of the Covid-19 pandemic, Bernard's daughter Eve has found a pertinent relevance of the play to our current circumstances.
The Navajo Nations in the American Southwest have been extremely hard hit by the coronavirus. To raise money for necessary medical supplies for this community, a stellar cast have come together to perform a reading of Melons on Zoom this upcoming weekend, including the likes of Raoul Trujillo and Michael Greyeyes.
Join them this May 2nd-6th at 6pm EST (11pm BST) for a wonderful reading of this timely play for an urgent cause. Click here to head to the Facebook event to find out all the information you need to watch Melons this weekend.
