Voices is a performance piece that weaves the writings of Emily Dickinson, Anne Frank, Langston Hughes, Helen Keller and Henry David Thoreau together in a thrilling collage set to original music. It has been described as “five solo performances happening simultaneously”. This is the newest piece by F. Reed Brown. Despite the diversity of the subjects, and despite their relative isolation from their cultures, Brown notes all five "were writing about universal human themes — love, death, family, nightmares — though from vastly different perspectives." It was this connection that fascinated Brown and prompted him to create the play, a collection of excerpts from journals, letters, and published works.
