I'm thrilled to share that there will be a staged reading of Quarter Year Dilemmas on March 31, 2012 at Bru Cafe, 141 Orange Street, New Haven, Connecticut (downtown, two blocks from the New Haven green) from 4 to 8 p.m. The event includes an hour of networking and a talkback with audience members, where they can provide feedback on the play which will be incorporated into subsequent readings and the final production.
Quarter Life Dilemmas examines the lives of four friends in their mid-twenties who have realized that life's not so much 'Sex in the City' as it is 'Broke, in Debt, and Hate my Job in the City.'
The reading is part of SWAN (Support Women Artists Now) Day. Despite the many great accomplishments women have made over the years, they continue to face enormous employment discrimination in the arts, entertainment and media industries. SWAN Day recognizes this fact and challenges women artists, writers, directors, and performers to use their creativity to bring awareness to this issue of disparity that women artists face on a daily basis.
The ProduceHERS is a new collaborative effort created by Halima Flynn and Aaliyah Miller aimed at producing new works written and directed by women and building audiences for female theatre artists. I hope to see you there.
Stay tuned for my next blog which will go more indepth about how The ProducHERS came to be. Thanks for reading.
