2017-2018 Season Statement:

"Caring for myself is not self-indulgence, it is self-preservation, and that is an act of political warfare." - Audre Lorde

In a society where femininity and female identities are constructed and regulated, how can we use feminist theatre to represent, investigate, and celebrate all that we know to be true about ourselves?

In The Continuum

by Danai Gurira & Nikkole Salter

"In the Continuum puts a human face on the devastating impact of AIDS in Africa and America through the lives of two unforgettably courageous women. Living worlds apart, one in South Central LA and the other in Zimbabwe, each experience a kaleidoscopic weekend of life changing revelations in this story of parallel denials and self-discoveries." - Samuel French

Produced by Jenna Levine

Directed by Diana Dimiri

You On The Moors Now

By Jaclyn Backhaus

"This crazy, funny show sets heroines from the 19th-century novels of Louisa May Alcott, Jane Austen and the Bronte sisters, in a mythical place of Moors. When our heroines receive proposals of marriage, they decide to escape. The men wage war on the women starting the Moors Wars. Jaclyn Backhaus’ ultimately moving and inventive play ends in beautiful prose like a chapter from the books these women originated." - The Hypocrites

Produced by Arthur Mergner

Directed by Harley Kirchoff
