By Anna Ziegler  |   Directed By Tracy Ward

Investigating the hot-button topics of gender and race politics, Anna Ziegler (“newly and justly hot” -New York Times) tells a story about our crippling desire to fit in. Amber and Tom, both freshmen at Princeton, spend a drunken night together. Soon after, they find themselves testifying at a sexual misconduct hearing. As the two students, one black and one white, tell their stories to the audience, we are left wondering how to find certainty and justice when there are three sides to every story.

Artists and friends, Adonna Ebrahimi and Karen Payton, show together in Ventura at Fox Fine Jewelry, for their show "Flower Power". All about the Power of Flowers and surrounding yourself with JOY. Instead of brushstrokes, Karen paints her canvas with textiles - using needle and thread along with colored pencils. Karen celebrates hippies with fabric portraits that look like paintings from far away. Primarily working in acrylic and incorporating other mixed media, Adonna creates bright , colorful compositions of flowers atop abstract backgrounds. The strokes and colors convey tremendous movement and energy in a way that is almost chaotic, but also somehow serene. Artist Reception: March 16, 6-8 pm

UNTIL THE FLOOD by Dael Orlandersmith
In the Ellyn Bye Studio
Directed by Neel Keller

“She brings the questions, the pain and even the unspeakable thoughts of hundreds, if not millions, to life. Until The Flood is an urgent moral inquest.” —The New York Times

Pulitzer Prize finalist and celebrated performer Dael Orlandersmith (Forever) explores the social unrest in Ferguson, Missouri following the shooting of teenager Michael Brown. Pulling from her extensive interviews with Missouri residents, Orlandersmith crafts a stunning theatrical experience that must be seen. The Chicago Tribune called it “palpably compassionate” and raved that it “achieves a great beauty by bringing us together rather than driving us apart."

YEN
by Anna Jordan
directed by Elly Green

London, now. Two practically feral teenaged brothers live alone in their filthy flat with a dog named Taliban, perpetually bathed in the blue glow of their screens, playing video games, watching porn, waiting for the occasional visit from their mother, and surviving. But when a strange neighbor girl barges through the door, the boys’ little blue world begins to change color.

Raven brings Anna Jordan’s savage, unrelenting drama to Chicago for the first time. A play about growing up, opening the windows, and letting in the light.

VENUE: Lyceum Hall, 432 High Street, Burlington, NJ 08016

From the artist:

You almost certainly use sympathetic magic in your day-to-day. It’s in the carefully posed photo on your social media profile. It’s in the pictures of fit people you post on the fridge to encourage healthy eating, or in the vision boards you make to help you focus on the life you want. For some, it’s even in the image of the Pope or the Dalai Lama that they hang in their homes, hoping that the holiness of these leaders will suffuse them via the photo.

Sympathetic magic is at work any time you use a representation of something in order to bring that thing into your life. Empathetic Magic, then, is made up of images that are meant to inspire a desire to dig deeper into why different people do different things. It’s a recognition that true empathy is not pretending that you know what it’s like to be in someone else’s shoes, but admitting that you have no idea and then listening to them.

The series is a collection of portraits of people or pairs who each have an aspect of their appearance or their selves that tends to be perceived as a disadvantage. The subjects are each painted twice: once how they feel they hide their differences or how they feel they should; and once how they flaunt them or how they wish they could. Participants include disabled people, old people, fat people, hairy people, people who struggle with mental illness, people of color, asexual people, queer people, and single mothers—and these identities often exist within the same individual, since humans are complex creatures.

Empathetic Magic is intended for those of us who believe we are accepting of others, while at the same time insisting that fat means a person is unhealthy, that a hairy back is gross, and that mental illness is just people overreacting. This work is for the judger and the judged in each of us.

Lady Randy

by Anne Undeland

April 18 – May 5, 2019

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

DATES: April 19 - June 15

COST: Free

This one woman art show by local Tribal member Ellen Taylor is colorful, vibrant, and full of love and respect for her subjects. Taylor says her art “…comes from visions, feelings, life experiences, death, turmoil, new birth, illness, relationships, and the history of life.” The perfect balance, according to Taylor, comes from finding the time to articulate, create, and balance all or some of this into her busy life. Each piece of her art “comes from a different place in her heart, but they are all woven together in perfect harmony.”

The public is invited to view the exhibit on opening day for FREE!

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.

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.

When her worried grandson arrives, determined to re-locate her from her beloved Richmond Hill, Queens to an assisted living community in New Jersey, the battle lines are drawn. Over the course of one tumultuous vodka-fueled evening filled with Irish magic and long-buried secrets, Sheila will learn to overcome her fears and finally find the courage to face the next chapter.

FACEBOOK EVENT PAGE

COST: $25

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.

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

DATES: April 26 & 27, 2019

WEBSITE

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.

COST: $8

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.

Bring me my son or this storm will kill you all. 

Cora, a midwife and herbalist, is in the wrong place at the wrong time. In search of her long-lost son, Cora arrives in a Puritan settlement in 1652 during the most destructive storm in a century. When she's thrown in jail under suspicion of witchcraft, she demands to see her child--a man the settlers call the Monster of Connecticut. Instead, she meets Miranda, a Puritan on the verge of childbirth, sent in to extract a confession and save Cora's soul. But neither Cora nor Miranda is exactly what she seems.

In lively conversation with THE TEMPEST, CHERUBIN takes on freedom, illusion, and agency through two of Shakespeares most under-explored characters.

sMOkeyTOWN – Andrea Prestinario
Songs of Smokey Robinson

Originally conceived as a 60th birthday gift to her father, Andrea Prestinario created sMOkeyTOWN, which salutes Smokey Robinson’s historic songwriting canon with party hats, pomp, and some serious Motown circumstance.

The Last Straw: A Continuing Quest for Life Without Disposable Plastic documents her journey and the creative alternatives she found. Free and open to the public.

"Barren" by Karen Heimbaugh

"Three of a Kind" by Michael Weems

Jamie and Reese, a terribly mismatched couple on their second date, are baffled when triplets are left on Jamie's doorstep. Jamie optimistically accepts the challenge to raise the children, but struggles to convince Reese that this was meant to be. After they retreat to their parents for sage advice, the couple meets at the hospital to make their final decision. 
Hold on. The story isn't over yet.
When reading this did you presume Jamie was female and Reese male? You're ½ correct. This story will see its lead actors perform once, swap roles/genders, and then perform the show once again. "Three of a Kind" is a modern exploration on preconceived gender roles in today's society coupled with the story of this young couple's challenge.

"The erasure of Asian women from history has tangibly negative impacts on Asian-American women everywhere. Representation matters, not just in Hollywood, but in our curriculum and cultural consciousness. These women’s stories matter. In a country where women of color’s contributions are so often pushed to the sidelines, there’s no time like Women’s History Month to celebrate the impact Asian-American women have had on history and our lives." - Katherine Oung

Represent! 2019 A Multicultural Playwright's Festival opens on March 31 at 4pm with our Local Playwrights Showcase, then features new workshop readings each night with Pratidhwani (3/31), eSe Teatro: Seattle Latinos Take Stage (4/1), SIS Productions (4/2), and The Hansberry Project (4/3).

Truth and Reconciliation of Womyn is a theatrical piece including a series of ten minute plays and songs by and about Womyn. Each composition addresses situations in which womyn, in all periods of time, have oppressed or silenced another womyn. We have been divided, marginalized and conquered; We cannot hold our place of power in the world because our biological existence has been devalued. Implicit self hate is the primary obstacle to the unification around issues affecting our biology. A line has been drawn between races or the amount of melanin in our bodies. These pieces are based on diversity and address inequalities that cut across multiple lines including race, class, gender, sexual orientation, and citizenship.

Each play then goes on a journey to represent different paths that women can take to heal the wounds between them. Theater, unlike any other artistic medium has the ability to mirror actual experience and thus to create greater fairness in political, legal, and economic systems that safeguard fundamental rights.

Writers and composers include:
Tonya Pinkins, Glory Cardigan, kristine M Reyes, Carmen Rivera, Nandita Shenoy, Kim Skyes, Caridad Svich, Michelle Tyrene Johnson, Angela Scalfani, Aditi Natasha Kini, Julie Brown, Desi Moreno-Penson, Jasmine McLeish, Jaisey Bates, Nikkole Saulter, Nellie McKay, Amanda Green, Shaina Taub, AriDy Nox

The company of actors include:
Richards Abrams, Yolande Bavan, Kimye Corwin, Ako Dachs, Rachel Holmes, Carmen Lobue, Akiko Hiroshima, Mary Arschbold Shay, Nemina Cesara, Jane Summerhayes, Paulina de la Parra, June Ballinger, Annie McGreevy.

Whys it important?

The Truth and reconciliation of Womyn’s Goal is to reach as many people as we can through Restorative Narratives that mirror all the paths that lead to healing and amplifying our voices to redefine womanhood.
