A NORTHERN STAR
Francisco Solórzano | United States | Fiction | 2017 | 13 min
A lost little boy. An old soul nursing old wounds. One life wanders into a nursing home and finds the other, a long-retired actress who enlists her fellow residents in a grand, kaleidoscopic symphony of sprawling Shakespearean performance, resulting in an explosive, life-affirming exchange of past and present joys…the lasting effect of which will undoubtedly, for both, prove as bright and constant as the Northern StarEspañol
