    What choices would you make to take back your power? The legendary characters of In Plain Sight will risk almost anything.

    Playwright Carol Lashof and director Elizabeth Vega formed Those Women Productions in 2014 to stage hidden truths of gender and power. Their first show was Just Deserts, which the Daily Californian described as “a sparkling spectacle . . . [which] satisfies as diverse an audience as it attracts.”

    Opening September 5, 2015 (Preview: September 4), Those Women will stage In Plain Sight at the Metal Shop Theater in Berkeley, an anthology of six short plays, offering new takes on old tales and startling insights into what women and men will do to regain control of their lives and their futures.

    Norman Johnson, Christine Keating, and Elizabeth Vega will direct the work of five Bay Area playwrights: Lee Brady, Carol Lashof, Kat Meads, Patricia Reynoso and Mimu Tsujimura. In Plain Sight features Alicia Bales, Ed Berkeley, Sharon Huff*,  Alexandra Lee, Ria Meer, Louel Señores, and Suzanne Vito.

    *Member, Actors Equity Association; In Plain Sight is an Equity-approved project.

    TICKETS: http://thosewomen.brownpapertickets.com

    Suggested price: $30.00. There is no minimum ticket price. Those Women practice Radical Hospitality; everyone is welcome, regardless of ability to pay.

    Synopsis

    Each short play is a reimagining of a classic story. We feature two new takes on Cinderella: Kat Meads’s whimsical comedy “Palace Watch” and the darkly realistic “Pankhadi and the Prince,” by Patricia Reynoso. Lee Brady’s tragicomic “Mississippi Medea” portrays a modern Medea who appears on her favorite talk show; Mimu Tsujimura’s lyrical drama “My Name Is Mother,” based on the legend of La Llorona, presents a vastly different picture of a notorious mother.  Two short plays by Carol Lashof round out the evening: “When Briseis Met Chryseis,” a romance set against the backdrop of the Trojan War, and “After the Prologue,” in which Chaucer’s Wife of Bath tells you what women really want.

    Playwright: Elizabeth Coplan. Elizabeth is a survivor of the Texas public school system where she did not learn to write, but where she did learn to daydream and create stories in her head. She would like to thank her husband and especially her sons, Spencer and Alexander, whose flight from the nest created a clearing of her mind and a chance to do something for herself — finally.

    Director: Linda Jensen

    Cast: Carolyn Goad, Diane Walker

    Synopsis

    For decades, Maya has kept silent about the abuse she suffered as a child at the hands of her uncle. Now she seeks to disclose the truth, confront the past, and move on.  In the meantime, her son Adam is entirely wrapped up in a new romantic relationship with Janice – the graduate teaching assistant in one of his college classes. Maya, resenting her own mother’s failure to protect her, is vigilant where her only child is concerned. Is Adam and Janice’s relationship exploitative? Maya is determined to stand up against abuses past and present, but every step she takes leads her deeper into conflict with the people she loves the most.

    Headwind---a play in two acts by Diane Taber

    Thirty-two-year-old Vivianne Cording’s independence as a landowner is already considered inappropriate in eighteenth-century Maine, but she risks more than censure by making and selling candles to protest the indiscriminant killing of whales for oil.  She has a relationship, outside of marriage, with Captain Zenas Rule who has made enemies of his own among the fleet owners. Together they become a headwind against a town that won’t change its course and threatens to crash right through them.

    the production by The Free Theatre Company, directed by Robert Chantler is the first time Headwind has been performed outside the USA.

    It received its international premiere on Radio Wey on Saturday 4th April 2015

    Cast - Christie Wright, Sue Ford and Robert Chantler

    You know our problem? Too much history, not enough geography.

    I am walking through Jerusalem and there isn't a Jew in sight.

    The Romans. The Christians. The Ottomans. The British.They come. They go.

    What happens on the road where Jew, Muslim and Christian meet?

    What happens when an Arab Muslim is attracted to an Arab Jew?

    What happens when a soldier refuses to report for duty?


    Crossing Jerusalem is set in the last intifada when buses are exploding and it's not safe to go out and buy food. This family drama, with its moments of black comedy, happens over 24 hours.

    Now is the time when  a son should be made, a birthday should be celebrated and an army should be served.

    Pascal explores the most politically tense city in the world. In this passionate play, she smashes stereoytpes on all sides and questions facile definitions of identity, love and war.

    Mildred's Umbrella Theater Company presents: THE DROWNING GIRLS

    by Beth Graham, Charlie Tomlinson and Daniela Vlaskalic


    Based on the 'Brides in the Bath' murders in early 20th century England, The Drowning Girls recounts the story of Bessie, Alice and Margaret, three women who were all wooed by, married to and eventually murdered by George Joseph Smith. Emerging from the stillness of their watery graves, the three women deliver post-mortem testimonies, reenacting key moments and reliving the horrifying events leading up to their eventual deaths. From the opening gasp to the final breath, THE DROWNING GIRLS is full of haunting lyricism and rich imagery that is sure to leave audiences captivated. 

    July 16-August 1, 2015  at Studio 101, 1824 Spring Street, Houston TX 77007.
