    Award-winning Performance-readings of D ARCY
    by Sandra Dempsey now booking!

    Award-winning Canadian-Irish playwright/performer Sandra Dempsey is now booking performance-readings of her outstanding published play, D ARCY.
      

    A marvellous, smashing piece.
    Gordon Pinsent, Toronto
    Stunning and memorable. A real tour de force!
    Rosemary O Brien, Parliament Hill, Ottawa

    Very lively history. Chilling, still relevant to modern day.
    Globe & Mail

    Sandra reaches a level of emotional excitement that effectively takes the words off the page and into the hearts of her audience.
    Brian Brennan, Calgary

    D'ARCY is as strong and important a play as any of the old masters. The Standard


    Humorous, emotional and passionate. She left the audience with lumps in their throats. Joan Cumming, Province House, Charlottetown

    Sandra was magnificent in the trousers role,
    drunk or sober, old or young,
    idealist or rogue and she also displayed an amazing, gorgeous Irish whisky-baritone singing voice!   Geralyn Horton, Galway

    D ARCY is the passionate dramatization of the life and times of Thomas D Arcy McGee, Irish patriot and Father of Confederation. In 1868, less than one year after the founding of Canada, D Arcy was assassinated in Ottawa by Irish-American Fenian terrorists.

    With her incredible acting and vocal abilities, Sandra literally performs D ARCY  before her audiences. She ll transport you back to the late 1800s for the inspirational yet tragic story of this great Irish-Canadian statesman, creating a most entertaining theatrical experience unlike any you ve ever seen or heard.

    Sandra has presented her patented performance-readings of D ARCY at theatres, libraries, schools, universities, colleges, clubs, societies, pubs, governments and on live radio throughout Canada, the USA and Ireland.
       

    Sandra's performance-reading  of D ARCYwill amaze your audience!

    Patricia Milton's new drama, "Without Mercy" will premiere at the Phoenix Theatre in San Francisco, February 24 - March 25, 2017. It is being presented by the award-winning Off Broadway West Theatre Company.

    Learning that her missing daughter has been murdered, an anguished mother battles her surviving daughter to make sure the killer receives the death penalty. Their clash of deep-seated beliefs causes long-held resentments to erupt around the family's tragedy. Their legal advocate swears he's neutral, but his actions contradict his claim. Challenged by a terrible trade-off, the three struggle to reach a resolution.


    This play was written at the Arts Letters + Numbers artists residency in Averill Park, NY, and was developed at Central Works Writers Workshop. We just went through a difficult election and voted as a state to speed up the executions of those condemned to death in California, so the subject matter is timely.

    Get tickets here.

    Elana Gartner's "Daughter" will receive a staged reading at UpTheater Company in New York on Sunday, January 15th at 7pm. This script was a PlayLab Selection for the Great Plains Theatre Conference in 2013. 


    When sixteen year old Robyn’s biological mother, Millie, contacts her on Facebook, Robyn tries to ignore her. A straight-A student with her hopes set on Harvard, Robyn has been happy with her adoptive parents and adoptive brother; she has not wanted to find her biological parents. But Millie is persistent and finally tells her why: she needs a bone marrow transplant within a week or she will have to go into an experimental trial program.

    Robyn embarks on an uncomfortably fast investigation about Millie and her origins, often keeping secrets and ignoring responsibilities to do so. When Robyn concludes that she wants to get tested to be a match, she must convince her adoptive parents and possibly face the reality that Millie could die without her help.

    Please join the East Coast Premiere at the Holy Trinity Church, 20 Cumming Street, New York, NY 10034.

    Amy will be performing and speaking on spirituality and resilience at the 2017 JOFA Conference on January 14th at Columbia University. She will also be performing original songs and excerpts from her one-woman musical, Gutless and Grateful. More information at http://amyoes.com/events/jofa

    The Jewish Orthodox Feminist Alliance (JOFA) is the leading organization advancing social change around gender issues in the Orthodox Jewish community. JOFA expands the spiritual, ritual, intellectual and political opportunities for women within the framework of halakha (Jewish law), by advocating meaningful participation and equality for women in family life, synagogues, houses of learning and Jewish communal organizations to the full extent possible within halakha. The core JOFA belief is that fulfilling this mission will enrich and uplift the entire Jewish people.

    The JOFA Conference, held every three years, is the premier destination for over 1,000 supporters of Orthodox feminism to celebrate, strategize, share best practices, and set the direction for innovation and impact in the organized Jewish community. The JOFA Conference explores the intersection of our feminist ideals with critical facets of our halakhic lives and religious experiences, including race, sexuality, family, and political structures. This year’s theme “Charting Your Course,” focuses on empowering individuals and communities to navigate paths to make real progress.

    I'll be bringing Gutless & Grateful, my comedic yet poignant musical story about personal triumph over unimaginable odds to the Metropolitan Room on February 5th and March 26th at 7pm. Through interwoven song and dialogue, I share a primal piece of live-storytelling - a powerful message that it's possible to stay hungry for life...even after an exploding stomach.  The show also features an original song written for me by Kathie Lee Gifford and David Friedman, after I was featured on NBC's Today Show.

    (A date change, due to the second TEDx Talk I will now be delivering on February 25th.)

    Since its BroadwayWorld Best Theatre Debut-nominated performance in 2012, I've been touring the show around the country, to theatres, international conferences, and universities, as a mental health and sexual assault prevention arts advocacy program. I'd love for you to catch the show before I take it out West this Spring, and back to 54 Below on June 9th 

     Gutless & Grateful comes to the Metropolitan Room on 34 W 22nd St, New York, NY 10010, on February 5th and March 26th at 7pm. More information at amyoes.com/metroom or see a press release in a Word Doc.


    "One part moving testament to human indomitability, the other a thoroughly satisfying evening of song. While each element is strong enough to stand on its own, combined they illuminate and enhance each other. Rarely have I seen narration and song so artfully meshed, and Oestreicher's likeability, good humor, interpretive skill, and manifest commitment to what she is saying and singing make us not only understand her story, but also feel it on a very deep level."

    - Roy Sanders, NYC Bistro Awards
