Black Girl, Interrupted

By LyaNisha Gonzalez

February 12th & 13th, 8PM CST

Directed by W. Jerome Stevenson

Tough and dedicated New York Times reporter Riley Jones is chasing the story of Sasha Green, a soldier whose brutal death has been covered up by the military. As she gets closer and closer to the disturbing truth, Riley must question her motivations for telling Sasha's story and confront her own painful past, including her fraught relationship with her soon-to-be ex-husband and the price she has paid to pursue justice for others. A compelling new drama, "Black Girl, Interrupted" investigates whose story gets lost when we focus on a woman's death rather than her life.

Revolutionists

By Lauren Gunderson

February 26th & 27th, 8PM CST

Directed by Lisi Levy

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.
