“Edgar is, without doubt, the greatest raconteur in the world,” says George Dawes Green, founder of The Moth.

Howl Arts is pleased to present a reading of The Seven Year Vacation, by renowned poet and playwright Edgar Oliver, starring Carine Montbertrand, Angela Rogers, Michael Laurence, Alexandra Wolkowicz, and Edgar Oliver.
