MODOTTI AND WESTON, by Claudia H. McGarry, is a professional staged reading starring Shari Howard and Ken Weiler about Tina Modotti adapted from the screenplay “Tina’s Revolt” written by McGarry and her writing partner, Patrick Read. It reflects a brief moment in the life of Tina Modotti, a beauty, a muse, an artist, a rebel, but more than all else, a humanitarian, and the famed American photographer, Edward Weston.  Tina Modotti, born Assunta Adelaide Luigia Modotti Mondini, immigrated to the United States from Udine, Italy, in 1913, joining her family in San Francisco.  A few years after having been a model and an actress, Ms. Modotti met Mr. Edward Weston, a successful photographer, with whom she had an affair. Her young husband, Robeaux Richey, moved to Mexico not long after. Weston and Modotti decided to follow and go to Mexico to pursue photography. Before plans were secure, however, Ms. Modotti learned that Richey had died. She left for Mexico, and much to Weston’s chagrin, found herself at the heart of a circle of rebel artists and Communists such as Diego Rivera, Frida Kahlo, Vittorio Vidali, Julio Mella and others who greatly influenced the course of her life.
