How Far We Have to Go
adapted by: Reese Overstreet
directed by: Reese Overstreet
How Far We Have to Go is a collection of scenes and monologues from 411 BC all the way to the present day. These monologues and scenes make a commentary on women’s representation in plays. For thousands of years, the portrayal of women in plays has been less than accurate and incredibly sexist. How Far We Have to Go shows the progression of women’s depiction in plays and the remaining work that must be done.
The Ashen Crown
written by: Daniel Prillaman
directed by: Christian Carew
At the ashen remains of a war-torn city, two queens meet with a rebel terrorist to negotiate terms of a peace treaty. However, their talks are soon interrupted by the appearance of a disquieting stranger, whose words set the women down a dark and frightening path of madness. Part Horror Fantasy, part war song, The Ashen Crown is a tale of violence, why we cause it, and what it causes for us. Performances November 18, 19, and 21 at Meek Auditorium. (18+)
