Event

A Work in Progress Theatre Company Presents... Make HERstory
Between the ages offour andfifteen I fought in my home more than a feather weight boxer in his prime. My household was not a safe place.Andthrough the many adversities I encounteredgrowing up,my coloring books and crayons were my most loyal companions. Art, unintentionally, proved to be a comfort to me throughout the trauma I experienced. I have alwaysloved art, in all itsforms. But the moment someone put a play in my angry teenage hands was the moment they saved my life."Make HERstory," is aground breaking and incredibly entertaining solo play that is used as a creative healingtool for variousorganizations throughout the east coast. (BCS in Brooklyn, NY, Stop the Silence in Washington, DC, and The Family Tree in Baltimore, MD etc.) On August 29th and 30th, A Work in Progress Theatre Company will present "Make HERstory" at the LaMama Theatre in New York City. Ten percent of the proceeds will support The Transitional Living Community's art therapy program in Brooklyn, New York.  



"MAKE HERstory", the one woman show written and performed by award winning actressBrock and accompanied by the djembe player Menes Yahudah, is a tale wrapped up in many tales. It is the story of Margret, atwenty-nine year old African American out of work actress and writerwho is juggling pounding the pavements ofNew York City to become a working actress with the personal journey of self acceptance and self love. It is also the story of her younger self Maggie, a courageous, highly sensitive, and optimistic 7 year old self made artist growing up in the 12th ward of New Orleans, La.As sheuses her imagination to survive the abandonment and abuse in her household Margret/Maggie tag team telling us HERstory. In this public conversation with her subconscious mind,she examines the perpetuating abuse that resides in her family lineage andexplores the possibility of forgiveness while she fights for the survival ofher childhood optimism. Itis reality's laughter, a GUMBO of true stories that neverhad the chance to be told - until now
