SOROR CARA

A new play written & performed by

Danielle LaRose & Harmonie Tower

Claudia Severa to her Lepidina greetings,

 

On 11 September, sister, for the day of the celebration of my birthday,

I give you a warm invitation to make sure that you come to us,

to make the day more enjoyable for me by your arrival, if you are present.

Give my greetings to your Cerialis. My Aelius and my little son send him their greetings.

sperabo te soror 

I shall expect you, sister.

vale soror anima

Farewell, sister,

mea ita valeam

my dearest soul,

karissima et have

as I hope to prosper, and hail.

-from Claudia to Lepidina circa 100AD at Vindolanda (Roman Britain).

Earliest known sample of women’s writing in Latin.

 

 

We hope to bring SOROR CARA back to audiences soon and safely,

but for now, you can enjoy our production photos,

program notes, and a show clip from our
