Women In Action
Celebrate Women's History Month with Sleeping Weazel's four-day festival, WOMEN IN ACTION: a new wave of art, theatre, music, and performance.

March 6, 2013: 12:00 pm at Boston Playwrights' Theatre:

Dramaturg Lisa Timmel will moderate a roundtable discussion about women writers in the American theatre and how women's issues dovetail with social justice issues around the world. The discussion will feature the playwriting committee members of VIDA: Obie Award-winning Caridad Svich, Ruth Margraff (professor, Art Institute of Chicago), Lisa Schlesinger (professor, Columbia College Chicago), and Charlotte Meehan (Sleeping Weazel Artistic Director and professor, Wheaton College). This event will livestream on HowlRound's #NEWPLAY TV. FREE!

March 7, 2013: 7:30 at The Factory Theatre:

Ruth Margraff, a leader in the new opera movement, will perform with her Café Antarsia Ensemble. Lisa Schlesinger and Magdalena Gómez (performance artist and Artistic Director, Teatro V!DA) will present work-in-progress readings. Theatre scholar Heidi Bean (Bridgewater State University) will lead the post-show discussion. FREE!

March 8-9, 2013: 7:30 (each night) at The Factory Theatre:

The Future Now - a triple bill featuring:

a performance lecture by visual artist Alexia Stamatiou

a solo show written and performed by Obehi Janice

When Obehi is diagnosed with clinical depression, she begins to wonder if she's BLACK enough, NIGERIAN enough, and has enough faith. With inventive prose and incredible wit, FUFU & OREOS stakes a claim for the power of voice in our search for self.

a new play by Adara Meyers
directed by Cecelia Raker

When a group of mothers and daughters attempt to prove their "individuality," the murky waves of love and death crash against generational angst and pseudo-religious understanding in this satirical play about womanhood.

Dramaturg Ilana Brownstein will moderate the post-show discussion on March 8.
