"April, the angel of the months, the young love of the year." - Vita Sackville-West (1892-1962) English author and garden designer

The process culminates in a presentation of the work for the general public as part of the series, giving CSC audiences larger exposure to new work. In this week's feature Abducted, a successful businesswoman and mother of two grown children is preparing for her 'departure' while her brother fights to get her psychiatric help, her boyfriend wants to reclaim the women with whom he fell in love and her son wants to go with her.
