An Exciting Evening with Anna Deavere Smith Live in Berkeley 

Thu., April 21 2016
Don’t miss an exciting opportunity to experience the acclaimed actress, playwright, and professor, ANNA DEAVERE SMITH, live in the East Bay! On April 21st, DayBreak Adult Care Centers presents an evening of Community and Conversation at the First Congregational Church in Berkeley. Enjoy fine local foods, premium wines, top-notch raffle experiences, and a riveting performance featuring excerpts from the powerful, one-woman show, Let Me Down Easy. Together with Anna, we will explore aging, the vulnerability of the body and the resilience of the human spirit. Based on interviews with an eclectic range of people, Anna will provoke profound thoughts on how we “value life and think about our mortality. Through feeling” — feeling the characters’ heartbreak, their hope, their resignation — “we deepen our understanding.”
