We are super happy to announce our director for our upcoming reading of "The Wise Women": Olivia Ragan!
Olivia is a New York based Theatre Director committed to sharing stories that challenge social constructs and expectations, especially those regarding women.
We’ve all heard a version of this at some point in our lives. Whether it has been through a classmate, tv show, play, or even from a family member. But what kind of affect can that saying really have on society? Jean Klein really dove into this occurrence in her play “Refractions Of Light”, directed by Nancy Pop on Thursday, March 15th at Alchemical Studios.
"You're terrible, but why? You like him, AND you hate him. These people don't understand that what they're doing is bad, or they can't affect someone for no reason. They think this is their right of life. They don't mean malcontent. But they think in these weird ways that bring about destruction to many lives. You can see how clearly he sees and believes these things without knowing."
A play for our times, Backyard/Desert explores the human ties that transcend all borders. When a female border patrol agent finds a young migrant lost in the desert, the aftershocks of the encounter slowly erode the foundations upon which she’s built her life, leading her to question her choices and relationships. In the end, she must make a wrenching decision in order to follow her truth.
