8/25 - SAN LEANDRO: Mama Juggs at Midnight
One-woman Play Confronts Breast Cancer and Body Image Through Straight Talk And Song 10-11:30pm Meet & Greet 12 Midnight Inspired by true stories from the playwright's life, Mama Juggs is an intimate performance about women's health, motherhood, and living with breast cancer. Oakland native actress Anita Shontel Woodley will bring this award-winning play to Sweet Fingers on August 25 for a midnight showing. A meeting and greet is scheduled from 10-1130pm for prizes, live music, and dancing. Mama Juggs channels the voices of three generations of African-American women within her family as they struggle with bra stuffing, breastfeeding and last stage breast cancer - all in the context of the social and economic adversity of the Oakland projects. Woodley wrestles with these issues through a diversity of theatrical styles, including a cappella negro spirituals, comedy, straight talk, improvisation, and audience interactions. Actress/playwright Anita Shontel Woodley, based in Chapel Hill, is an award-winning journalist for WUNC-FM's The Story with Dick Gordon. She plays three different characters in Mama Juggs (Grandma Suga Babe, Mable-Ree, and Anita) without the help of costume changes or scene breaks. This performance is sponsored by the Triangle Association of Black Journalists. Mama Juggs has been warmly received by audiences across the U.S. Written as a promise to her mother - who died of breast cancer before 50 - it seeks to challenge cultural taboos and stereotypes surrounding breast health and body image. By raising both money and social consciousness, it's designed to contribute to the winnable campaign against breast cancer.
