Playwright and actress Naomi Newman is the 2015 Regina Barnes Fellow at the Mesa Refuge. Naomi will give a solo performance of Becoming Grace, a play based on the life of Grace Paley, as a benefit for Mesa Refuge. Culled from snatches of Paley's stories, poems, essays and interviews, the play describes her life as a Jewish writer, mother, activist and, ultimately, lioness of literature.  The performance will be followed by a reception at the Mesa Refuge.

About Naomi Newman: Naomi Newman was the co-founder of the Traveling Jewish Theatre Company (TJT) as well as a TJT playwright, director, and performer for 35 years until its closing in 2011. Before that she sang on the concert stage, acted in television, and had a psychotherapy practice.
