Lot's Wife, a staged reading
A new play by Laurie Nathan
Directed by Bo Petersen


Following the play, join us for a talkback with the playwright. 

Lot’s Wife is an epic tale of love, violence, betrayal and liberation from oppression. It begins with the Israeli invasion of Gaza, spans the millennia back to Abraham’s knife at his son’s throat, and moves forward to the dramatic triumph of Lot’s wife and the sisters over the male deity and mortals that confined them to the fields, the kitchen, and the bedroom.

Lot's Wife is a radical, feminist challenge to patriarchy, digging deep into its historical and biblical roots in a rousing style that resonates with the contemporary struggles of women to be seen, to be heard, and to be free from fear and threat.

COST: $25

9-1-1 What’s Your Emergency: The Verdict by Jovelyn Richards

9-1-1 What’s Your Emergency? premiered as a one-act play at La Peña Cultural Center in 2018 as an artistic response to the local 9-1-1 calls that made BBQ Becky and Permit Patty infamous on a national level. Act one examined how the 9-1-1 call is rooted in “micro-aggression”, yet can have irreparable consequences to communities of color.

We are so pleased to be presenting a groundbreaking second act, “The Verdict”, which further examines the intersection of structural racism and personal psychological narratives that propel the calls.

Written and directed by Bay Area playwright Jovelyn Richards and starring a cast of local actors, the play uplifts the stories of the victims and the defendants against the backdrop of: gentrification, stereotypes, systemic racism and the personal narratives of humanity.

SYNOPSIS:

Are 9-1-1 calls against black and brown people hate crimes? The verdict of “Guilty” or “Not Guilty” rests in the hands of the jurors.

On the eve of the court’s decision the doors open into the bedrooms of the prosecutors, defendants, key witnesses, BBQ Becky and Permit Patty. What happens behind closed doors in matters of race can no longer be hidden when everybody’s dirty laundry is exposed.

Poetic justice will be served in this court drama based on real life 9-1-1 calls.

What people have to say about “9-1-1 What’s Your Emergency?”:

9-1-1 What is Your Emergency? is a brave and brilliantly performed play. The characters are raw and relatable, and every word uttered is clearly written with love and grace, making this difficult story approachable to a wide audience. We all benefit from the healing space director Jovelyn Richards creates in her artivism.

– Sarah Maslov, SURJ Bay Area

As the presenting partner, it has been an honor to uplift the visionary storytelling work of playwright and director Jovelyn Richards. When we support black women authors, playwrights and directors we open doors for other POC in the arts, create spaces for communities of color to see their authentic stories reflected on stage, and invite an intercultural audience to sit with both the tension and ease of difficult subjects, a dichotomy that only the arts can create. To Jovelyn and the cast members, thank you for entrusting us with holding this space for you.

The Women with Wings Choir returns for its annual concert at 7pm, Saturday April 27, 2019 at the First Presbyterian Church on the corner of Siskiyou and Walker in Ashland, Oregon. This has become a Southern Oregon tradition performing to a full house. The Women wish to entertain and empower you with poignant and relevant selections for the evening. The theme for this year’s program is: Together We Are One.

This fun loving group of women has come together in song since the fall of 1995 creating a sense of community by singing songs of inspiration for themselves that will also inspire you as well. Women with Wings was founded on the principle that one should always encourage the woman next to you to sing for the joy of the music. Many in the chorus have discovered the power residing in themselves to make music, sing from their hearts, and together create beauty, harmony, and fun. Through the years, Women With Wings has performed at various community events such as the Annual National Aids Awareness Day and with GALA Choruses in Denver Colorado.

Please "come and join our circle where magic flows" in an evening of joyful singing guaranteed to put a smile in your heart and help to build a bridge toward better understanding of all. Doors open at 6:30pm. Suggested donation is $10-$20.

the strength, passion, and dedication of the women she works beside. While the

Babel by Jacqueline Goldfinger
A talking stork, lesbian moms, and the power to build your own baby... In this version of a near future society, prospective parents learn within the first weeks of conception which traits their child will have and what behaviors it is likely to exhibit. Based on these test results, they are either issued a PRE certification which legally guarantees the baby will be a "good" person or not. Without the certification, the child will be limited in what it is allowed to do. Two couples, both early in their pregnancies, collide over what to do with their PRE certification test results. With rapid advances in reproductive technology, modern eugenics is science’s Wild West. What will we do to “civilize” it and ourselves? How far will we go when playing God? Click here to register.

ALAMO MANHATTAN PRODUCTIONS In Association with Obstinate Headstrong Girl, LLC Present SELF-INJURIOUS BEHAVIOR

Written by Jessica Cavanagh

Produced by Jessica Cavanagh and Bren Rapp Co-

Produced by Ronnie Marmo/Theatre 68

Associate Producer, Montgomery Sutton/Salt Pillar Productions, LLC

Directed by Marianne Galloway

SELF-INJURIOUS BEHAVIOR is based on playwright and star, Jessica Cavanagh’s, own story of loss, love and survival. When severely autistic, eleven-year-old Benjamin becomes a danger to himself, his divorced mother, Summer, makes the excruciating decision to admit him to a home for special needs kids. Seeking comfort, she visits her sisters in Portland who desperately and hilariously attempt to distract her with a weekend of escapism at the local renaissance faire. Plagued by haunting dreams of her son and memories of her marriage, Summer is forced to face the need to let go. Striking a chord across audience demographics thanks to its bittersweet and unique blend of honesty and humor, Jessica Cavanagh has captured, in telling her own story, a voice that speaks to the qualities within us all not only to cope with our own “unimaginables” but to continue to live, making the play more than just a story about autism or motherhood, but one about the resiliency of human nature.

WORLD PREMIERE

A delightfully dizzying romp through the life of Jennie Jerome, mother of Winston Churchill.

In 1875, the American heiress, Jennie Jerome, seemed to have have it all. She had married an English lord, she was young, rich and beautiful, and she had just given birth to Winston Churchill. LADY RANDY takes us on a dizzying ride through the treacherous, kaleidoscopic sexual and political landscape of her marriage.  A woman ahead of her time, Jennie kept everyone watching, kept them guessing, and she never, ever surrendered.

 “Brilliant, maddening, impossibly seductive, vaultingly ambitious, I fell headlong in love with this woman who was at once so ahead of her time and yet very much a product of her era. The first in a long line of dollar princesses, Jennie Jerome stunned me in the audacity with which she wrote her own rules in the dangerous game of sex and power. Helping launch WAM Theatre’s world premiere production of LADY RANDY – right here in the Berkshires – is among the biggest thrills of my life.” ~Playwright Anne Undeland

 “Berkshire Playwrights Lab (BPL) is proud to have been a part of the development of LADY RANDY for the past 1 1/2 years. We are always thrilled when a play we have nurtured moves on to a production in the Berkshires or another regional theatre. Our mission is to give playwrights a safe and supportive environment so they can do their best work and this is another example of the value of that mission. We love working with our artistic partners in the Berkshires and wish the best of luck to Anne, Jim, WAM Theatre and Lady Randy as their journey continues.” ~Tristan Wilson, Managing Director, Berkshire Playwrights Lab

ANNE UNDELAND (Playwright) WAM Theatre: Lady RandyFacing our Truth. Writing: As a playwright Anne is an active member of Berkshire Voices, Berkshire Playwrights Lab’s writing group, and Howl Playwrights out of Rhinebeck, NY. Her short plays, The Kiss and Another Party of the Wood, were selected for BPL’s Radius Festival in 2018 and 2019. The Kiss won best play at Writer’s Voice Ten Minute Play Festival at the West Side Y in New York in the spring of 2018. She is currently at work on Touch, an evening of sketches that feature, in a quietly revolutionary way, a woman over 45 who drives the action and gets the bulk of the funny lines. Lady Randy is her first full length play. Online: www.anneundeland.com

FIRST LOVE IS THE REVOLUTION

By Rita Kalnejais
Directed by Devon de Mayo

Basti is having a rough go of it without his mom and Rdeca is struggling just to make her first kill. But when this 14 year-old boy and this young fox connect, the world just seems to make a whole lot more sense. Rita Kalnejais' First Love is the Revolution is a wild take on the timeless tale of star-crossed lovers - from different sides of the animal kingdom.

On Hands:
by Laj. P Waghray
In a time when our experiences of the world are mediated through technology, this poetic film brings our attention to an essential way of experiencing it, by using our hands. By documenting their work with hands, we explore the satisfaction it provides, and how they are redefining what success means.

COST: $25

Conceived by performer/co-creator Naomi Newman, “World On Fire” is an ensemble music-theatre performance on climate change. Newman's long-time collaborator Corey Fischer (Fischer and Newman were co-founders of Traveling Jewish Theatre, 1978-2012) is directing Newman and accomplished cross-genre musicians Barbara Borden (drummer/percussionist) and Susanne DiVincenzo (bass/cello) in this new project. "World On Fire” is anything but a conventional modern poetry reading. This work reconnects poetry to the music from which it was once inseparable. We four collaborators are shaping a performance event that uses voice, language, rhythm, melody and imagination to create a space where audiences can celebrate all existence, mourn what’s been lost and discover how we might transcend our opinions, our sense of powerlessness and our fears.

Band Members and Instrumentation

Naomi Newman - actress, spoken word

Barbara Borden - percussion

Susanne DiVincenzo - bass and cello
