On Wednesday, October 21st at 8:00 p.m., the Altadena Library District presents Conversations With The Waterman.

Set at the beginning of the Iraq war, a young Latino truck driver develops a life-changing relationship with a Hollywood actress and activist.

This staged reading, directed by writer-director, Mimi Seton, will star multi-award-winning actress, Laurie O’Brien who first took L.A. by storm with her stunning performance in Mary Barnes. She will be working alongside Latino actors, Hugo Medina and Melinna Theatrina, a company member from the world-famous Theatro Campesino, founded by Luis Valdez.

This program is free to the public, no reservations are required.

Mimi Seton is a multi-award winning writer-composer-director who has taught Theatre Arts at the University of Paris and Trinity College Dublin. Called a “New Theatre Visionary” by the L.A. Weekly, multi-award-winning theatre artist, Mimi Seton, is known for her lyrical sensibility and dark sense of humor.
