Clark’s Department of Visual and Performing Arts presents “Big Black Balloon,” a new play by Clark alum Eljon Wardally ’03, streamed via Zoom on Tuesday, October 20th at 7.30 pm. The reading will be followed by a talkback with the playwright, where we’ll be fielding questions on the play and Eljon’s career.

“Big Black Balloon” explores the relationship between Henry and Cleo, two people whose insecurities trigger their imaginary friends to return and take over their lives. Set in a studio apartment in L.A., the city of celebrity also serves as a character igniting the pressure to be beautiful and glamorous at all costs.

Eljon Wardally is a Playwright and Screenwriter born in New York with Grenadian roots. Plays include Black Americanah for Sale, Blooming In Dry Season, By A Thread, and Big Black Balloon). Eljon attended Clark University and received her MFA in Playwriting from Fordham/Primary Stages as part of its inaugural class. She is currently in development for the scripted series Forward Ever and the feature Rum and Coke.

“Big Black Balloon” will be read by current Clark students, faculty, and alumni, including:
Hannah Yukon ’16
Brett Iarrobino ’21
Elle Woolever-Frost ’21
Gino DiIorio ’84
