The Dragonflies by Kayla Hambek; A Virtual Reading, Directed by Carl Randolph
Have you ever had someone in your life you simply couldn’t live without? The person who knows you better than anyone else, who would walk through fire for you, but who also takes great pleasure in telling you when you’ve messed up? For Dr. Juliet Britton, that person is Max, her best friend since college. Juliet has always prided herself on being the smart one in their relationship, but when she is hospitalized unexpectedly, she finally asks Max for help. Set in 2049 and told through a series of flashbacks, The Dragonflies explores how friendships change and evolve over the course of a lifetime, and the importance of finding that special person who makes life worth living.
