2019-2020 Season

Our Second Season tells the Stories of Women

“I am Woman, Hear me Roar!” in 1919, White women received the right to vote and while they were always navigating their power in a male dominated world, the 19th amendment gave ALL women hope, access, and freedom.  Even marginalized women of color felt empowered knowing that in time, their vote would also come. This season we are celebrating 100 years of women empowered by feminism, activism, and surviving adversity.

Kia Clark has dreamt of Marisol Feliciano since the start of the school year, but always assumed that she was staunchly heterosexual (like everyone else in their neighborhood). While supporting Marisol through a health crisis, the two share a forbidden kiss that starts a fulfilling — but challenging — romantic relationship. Straining to keep their involvement a secret from their conservative mothers and their gay-bashing classmates, harassment from even their closest friends escalates, forcing Kia to choose between her newfound sexuality and societal acceptance.

Inspired by the real life experiences of Rwandan refugees in the UK, the play tells the story of two people from entirely different worlds who meet at a Refugee Center in London: Juliette is a young Rwandan asylum seeker, determined to write a book on the genocide that killed her family; Simon is a middle-aged failing novelist, whose job it is to help people write. The play follows their funny and touching relationship and tackles issues that refugees around the world face – even today.

 

The Revolutionists

By Lauren Gunderson

April 23 – 26, 2020 – BUY TICKETS HERE!
Liddy Doenges Theatre,
Tulsa Performing Arts Center

Four beautiful, badass women lose their heads in this irreverent, girl-powered comedy set during the French Revolution’s Reign of Terror. Playwright Olympe de Gouges, assassin Charlotte Corday, former queen (and fan of ribbons) Marie Antoinette, and Haitian rebel Marianne Angelle hang out, murder Marat, and try to beat back the extremist insanity in 1793 Paris. This grand and dream-tweaked comedy is about violence and legacy, art and activism, feminism and terrorism, compatriots and chosen sisters, and how we actually go about changing the world. It’s a true story. Or total fiction. Or a play about a play. Or a raucous resurrection…that ends in a song and a scaffold.
