Upcoming Events

A Memory, a Monologue, A Rant and A Prayer
This groundbreaking collection, edited by Ensler and Mollie Doyle, features pieces from “Until the Violence Stops,” the international festival that brings the issue of violence against women and girls to the forefront of our consciousness. These diverse voices rise up in a collective roar to break open, expose and examine the insidiousness of brutality, neglect, a punch or a put-down.

May 17, 18, 19 & 20

3rd Annual Student Original Production We CREATE this performance by starting with broad questions:
  • What is your truth?
  • Are you living your truth or what others have decided is your truth?
  • Is there a fine line between the truth and a lie?
  • When you think of truth, what images do you see?
