In The Old Mezzo, written by Berkshire based playwright Susan Dworkin, Alyssa, an internationally acclaimed opera star, is driven by the recent death of a famous conductor to teach a master class concerning the Politics of Singing. As the class unfolds a surprising connection to recent events is revealed and we see how Alyssa had to risk her fame and success to preserve the freedom that is so essential to the arts. In keeping with WAM's mission, a portion of proceeds from this production will be donated to Shout Out Loud Productions: Taking Action to Address Sexual Trafficking.

Ms. Dworkin is best known for her books The Viking in the Wheat Field and The Nazi Officer's Wife as well as her play All Day Suckers. She was also a finalist for the Susan Blackburn Prize in 1980-1981 for her play Deli's Fable. Ms. Dworkin was one of the original writers and editors at Ms. Magazine.

"As a writer and as a human being, Susan Dworkin has always had the ability to draw us into new dreams of justice, and to make them irresistibly practical, humorous and human. She makes clear that progress and pleasure go together."
Gloria Steinem

Doors open at 7:30pm on Friday/Saturday and 4:30pm on Sunday.

WAM Theatre is a theatre company based in the Berkshires of Massachusetts and the Capital Region of New York State. Inspired by the book 'Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide' by Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn, WAM Theatre was founded in 2009 by professional theatre artists Kristen van Ginhoven and Leigh Strimbeck. WAM's philanthropic mission is two-fold; first, producing theatrical events for everyone, with a focus on women theatre artists and/or stories of women and girls; second, to donate a portion of the proceeds from those events to organizations that benefit women and girls. WAM has donated nearly $5000 to its beneficiaries by creating professional theatre for everyone that benefits women and girls.

... the company continues to innovate and expand its welcome to everyone in the Berkshires using theatre as a fulcrum upon which they balance their concerns as both women and artists....." Larry Murray, Berkshire On Stage
