Fiction: Daleth Hall, Theme from Titanic

Actor Annie McNamara reads a story by author Daleth Hall entitled Theme from Titanic. (27 minutes)

Daleth Hall holds a University of Michigan MFA in fiction, which is her true love, and a law degree, which she went back for after having the mind-blowing realization that an MFA in fiction does not in fact pay the rent. Her novella The Morris Dancing Blues appeared in Talon Magazine in 2010, and her fiction and poetry have been in Earth's Daughters, NYC Big City Lit, The Strange Fruit and elsewhere. She has lived in London and San Francisco, over a Shakespeare & Co. bookstore in Paris, and, briefly, as an illegal immigrant in a tent outside Dijon, France. After seven years in Europe, she moved to Pittsburgh, where she now lives and practices law. She is currently revising her first novel, Blue Guitar.

Annie McNamara performed in the 2010 production of GATZ at The Public Theater with her company, Elevator Repair Service. Prior to this sold out and twice extended run, GATZ toured for five years-- an odyssey which included stops at The Sydney Opera House, A.R.T. & The Vienna Festwochen, to name a few. Ben Brantley of The New York Times hailed GATZ as "The most remarkable achievement in theater not only of this year but also of this decade." Also with ERS, The Sound and The Fury (April Seventh, 1928), which ran at New York Theatre Workshop and toured Australia, Europe and LA. Other theater credits include: That Pretty Pretty (Rattlestick), God’s Ear (New Georges), A Perfect Couple (DR2), Port Authority Throw Down (Culture Project), Novel (SPF), Waterborn (EST); and with Clubbed Thumb, where she is an affiliated artist: Crumble (Lay Me Down, Justin Timberlake), Design Your Kitchen and U.S. Drag. Annie has an M.A. in English from Brown University, and she studied acting with Maggie Flanigan.


New River Dramatists


A program of stories, plays, and poetry co-produced with New River Dramatists.

New River Dramatists, located in the Blue Ridge Mountains in North Carolina, is a not-for-profit project that distinguishes itself in that it is looking for writers to assist, not works to produce. Engaging writers on the strength of their individual talents instead of the potential merit of a single piece, payment of Honoraria to all participants, the absence of casting and the commitment to process first are among many factors that, taken all together, make New River Dramatists unique.
