    Plays contain adult themes 

    Cat and Mouse – 

    Marcus Meekus is a Hollywood movie director. Jade is bussing tables having just appeared in her first acting role — a tampon advert. When their paths cross, Jade thinks her life will change forever. However, both are in for a shock. 

    [TW//CW//sexual assault, specific, brief moment]

    Sylvie and Sly – 

    Sylvie and Sly tells the tale of an aging actress, who in denial about her tragic reality, decides to save a floundering career with the help of a devoted friend and social media. 

    Beach Break –

    Two young female friends go away to a holiday resort to escape problems at home. It’s only a matter of time before something terrible happens. Something that will have dark and explosive repercussions.

    [TW//CW//references to sexual assault)]

    Audience feedback (Next Stage Press review page):

    "Three one act plays that deliver on every level and absolutely shook us to the core!"

    “The overall arc of these plays with regards to human behavior is absolutely masterful”

    "Women behaving as badly as men with all the devastating consequences"

    “Great social conscious work”

    “The writing has fantastic moral ambiguity, the darkly comic interchanges power the stories, and the relationship forward”

    "Writing is fierce, complex, nuanced, deep and honestly human, real and messy"

    "Pickering expresses the duality of people and human nature elegantly. She is not afraid to work in the shadows."

    "Hard-hitting plays. By turns funny, dark, absurd, sexy, and bold, they evince a subtle understanding of friendship and a host of other relationships"

    "Tackling difficult female agenda bravely in work that is unafraid in it’s honest portrayal"

    "Once in a decade or few comes a writer that breaks the rules of convention"

    "A brave, modern day, 19th century anarchist, who throws a bomb into the audience and every conversation, leaving all sides to work out what happened. Few truths survive intact"

    "What a ride this play is! I read it and couldn’t put it down. It’s packed with nuance and complexity." 

    "Incredible stories with incredible dynamics and feelings and relationships."

    "Poignant, funny and captivating."

    "As a story teller, Pickering's ability to grab the audience and not let them off the hook is masterful. You feel uncomfortable, unsettled, yet riveted as she leads the audience one way then the next with twists."

    "Delving into the themes of feminism, sexism, attachment, manipulation through authentic female voices while also providing intriguing mystery"

    "Beach Break is smashing in it’s end, and it is an astonishing work, because it lingers in your mind which means it’s literally unforgettable"

    Koël Purie Rinchet (Actress, Producer)

    Koël Purie Rinchet is a multi-award-winning Indian media personality, who trained at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts in London, has made her home in Paris and lives to tell stories, regardless of the medium.

    She has spent nearly two decades in front and behind the camera, performed on stage at every opportunity and used her pen to give expression to the rage and delight that fills her. Having worked and lived in Delhi, Mumbai, London, Toronto, Tokyo and Paris she has refined her skill of being a serial-outsider while masquerading as a well-connected insider.

    After speeding through University in the UK(where her time was fairly divided between acting and downing warm beers), she created and acted in a daily TV show called Aaj Ki Naariwhich dealt with the perks and perils of being a woman, for the National broadcaster of India with a reach of over 300 million households.

    It went on to become a rage, while also causing much outrage. She received daily adulation and threats in equal measure. This was followed by a decade as an actor. Her lead film roles include the BAFTA winnerDirty War, the generation defining Bollywood film RockOn!!, the cult-classic Everybody Says I’m Fine and the edgy Road to Ladakh.

    She debuted on stage as Desdemona in Shakespeare’s Othello in Leicester. Finally, she put her gift of the gab to good use and produced and hosted a top-rated celebrity chat show called On the Couch with Koël. Somewhere, between leaving India and moving to Paris with her French husband and daughter, she made a pit stop in Tokyo for a few years, and somehow, got hired by the Japanese government to be their Tourism Ambassador.

    Currently, anthropological observations and overt eavesdropping occupy most of her time as she shuttles, masked and sanitised, between Paris and Mumbai, to createTV content, produce theatre, and industriously finish her first novel, before it finishes her.

    Best Life by Melisa Tien
    Directed by Susanna Jaramillo

    If you could turn back time, what would you do differently? In this absurdly funny and unsettling new play, Lourdes, a woman of color aiming to get free, can rewind time—but only within the last five minutes. At a café, she meets Sheryl, a wealthy white woman with heartfelt yet deeply misguided intentions. As they talk, Lourdes keeps rewinding time in an attempt to have the ‘right’ conversation with Sheryl. Soon, the forces of social responsibility, public allyship, and private guilt creep their way into the exchange.

    "No Fall My Hand" is a drama based on my own story. It will be livestreamed Friday 10/8 at 8:00 EST as part of The Voices of Women Theatre Festival. Live talkback afterwards. Tickets $15.

    Director’s Statement: Amy Losi’s courageous play, "No Fall My Hand," is a statement about the effects of domestic abuse. In many instances victims hide their abuse and "say nothing or do nothing." The two characters transcend their pain to develop a sense of empowerment when they share their experiences with each other.  -- Joan Kane, Director
