Unpublished Saroyan plays get a staging at Armenian Museum
The plays — six of them, done in excerpts over 75 minutes — come from the William Saroyan Collection at Stanford University, part of a stash that Kouyoumdjian discovered while working on his master’s thesis in English literature. They were written in the 1970s, late in Saroyan’s career, and are examples of Saroyan’s diaspora writing.
Aram Kouyoumdjian, who premiered a set of previously unpublished and unperformed plays by the Pulitzer Prize-winning author earlier this month at the Los Angeles Central Library, is directing the four-person cast.
Reservations can be made at 559-224-1001. The museum is at 550 E. Shaw Ave. in Fresno.
