Erin Courtney's "I Will Be Gone"
Set in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, I Will Be Gone tells the story of 17-year-old Penelope who goes to live with her aunt Josephine after her mother passes away. It’s a small town...the kind where everybody knows everybody and knows about everybody. And the abandoned mining town nearby is filled with ghosts. As the lives of the living become more and more haunted, Courtney shapes a coming-of-age story about broken hearts, earthquakes, exorcisms and sexual encounters.
Courtney is a Guggenheim Fellow, Obie Award winning playwright and Assistant Professor in the MFA Playwriting program at Brooklyn College, from which she graduated in 2003.
