Summer Sister 2016 present OF WOMEN AND WOLVES. This devised theatre performance looks at themes inspired by the feminist staple Women Who Run with the Wolves by Clarissa Pinkola Est├ęs.

Using text, music, dance and images, this experimental piece features local artists Drina Dunlap, Jessica Flemming, Amanda Hahn, Rachel Klem, Page Purgar, Dierdre Shipman, and Carissa White. The show was written by the cast with contributions from Stella Duffy, Sylvia Freeman, Barbette Hunter, Tamara Kissane, Carly Prentiss Jones, and Amy Sawyers.
