Charting the Lost Continent: Poetry and Other Discoveries

January 2020 (Rainbow River Press)

Book Cover for Charting the Lost Continent by Linda Albert

The Award-Winning Book Comes to Life on Stage

Sarasota Jewish Theatre's production of Charting the Lost Continent presents a unique spin on an age-old question. How is it that life flies by in the blink of an eye? Charting the Lost Continent pulls back the curtain on the common and the monumental, the quiet and the cataclysmic, the sweet and the silly events that make up the journey of our life. 

Directed by India Marie Paul, this production of Linda Albert's award-winning book features five fabulous Sarasota actors: Pam Wiley, Victoria Flounders, Alice Cotman, Aden Russel, Donna Gerdes.

Below: Scenes from opening night at The Players Centre for Performing Arts in Sarasota; October 22, 2023. Look for 2024 performance dates to be announced soon! Read "A lifelong poet sees her work brought to life on stage" in this recent article by Sarah Owens for public radio station WUSF/NPR.

"truly absorbing"

Like any truly absorbing book that cannot be put down, I read it halfway through and promised myself I would save the rest for the evening's dessert. I was so charmed, not only by the poet's thoughts and her gentle humor which so often resonated, but by the distinct cadence I felt while reading Charting the Lost Continent.
