Women Center Stage Update
Caroline Rothstein’s faith for one night only!
As seen in two sold-out performances in the WCS 2012 Festival! Caroline Rothstein’s honest, poetic, and breathtaking solo play about her gut-wrenching struggle to cope with the expectations and turmoil of coming of age. Written and performed by Caroline Rothstein, and directed by Alex Mallory. Presented by Poetic Theater Productions as part of the 2012 Planet Connections Theatre Festivity.
This special benefit performance will be tomorrow, June 14 at 8:00 p.m. at Culture Project (45 Bleecker Street). As part of Planet Connections’ socially conscious mission, all net ticket proceeds for this benefit performance will be donated to the National Eating Disorder Association. For tickets ($18) and more information visit PlanetConnections.org or PoeticTheater.com.
We Play for the Gods
Written, Directed and Produced by the 2010-2012 Women’s Project Lab. Including WCS alumna: Charity Ballard, Dominique Morriseau, and Nicole Watson; WCS 2011 alumna: Sarah Rasmussen, Mia Rovegno, and Jessi Hill; and our very own WCS Festival Director, Manda Martin!
The copier coughs. The air conditioner stutters. Your Post-It supply is running low. Don’t dismiss the notion that you may be reckoning with forces divine. In the world premiere production of WE PLAY FOR THE GODS, four women go to work on a seemingly ordinary day only to find that a trickster god has slid through the cracks and cubicles of their office to take them on a journey to the other side of ordinary. Who knows, today the same could happen to you.
Performances now through June 23 at Cherry Lane Theatre (38 Commerce Street). Purchase tickets ($61) at WePlayfortheGods.com.
The Wild Finish goes to Norway
About the show: On a snowy Easter Sunday, Monica embarked on a bicycle journey across the vodka-soaked roads of Poland in search of the man who haunts her-a man of power, genius, fame and violence-her grandfather.
Monica Hunken’s The Wild Finish was workshopped in the Women Center Stage 2011 Festival, and a full production was mounted last January co-presented by WCS. The show made its international premiere in the Amsterdam Fringe Festival, and has now been selected for Norway’s international theater festival. Break a leg, Monica!
