One-person play coming to Leavenworth

March 18, 2011

“Deep Listening,” an engaging, one-person play that uses stories, gentle humor and simple songs to explore the reality of “looking death in the face” will be staged from 1:30-3:30 p.m. Saturday, April 16 at the Marillac Center, 4200 S. Fourth St., Leavenworth.

Lisa Wagner-Carollo, founder and director of Still Point Theatre Collective, a company that combines her interests in ministry and theater, will give the performance. "Deep Listening" is a new play developed by Still Point around themes of death, dying and end-of-life care. Wagner-Carollo commissioned Teresa Weed, playwright, to create the play. The result of this collaboration developed into a play with music.

For more than 15 years, Wagner-Carollo has toured the country and overseas with “Haunted by God: The Life of Dorothy Day.” She founded Still Point in 1993 and has produced and performed in several other productions.

A free will offering will be accepted at the performance. The Marillac Center, which is on the campus of the Sisters of Charity of Leavenworth, requests that people planning to attend either call or email (913) 758-6552 or For more information, visit
