    Now - it's coming home again. August 16 - 19 at K-W Little Theatre.

    Facebook Event

    Five women are accidentally locked overnight in a mall washroom.


    Shaking the Dew from the Lilies has got to be the most provocative, explicit, yet fascinating and funny play ever to be staged in Waterloo region. 
    Harry Currie – Record Staff

    It may be an eye-opener to men, who cannot know how women, on a personal comfort level, talk between themselves. Above all, it was a real-life comedy with serious undertones. Many will learn from absorbing and thinking a bit about the impact early life experiences have on current behaviour.
    ~ Irena Wandschneider

    This play is emotionally compelling and really, really funny. The things that are addressed are honest. I've never seen any of this material on stage before. 
    ~ Cynthia Davies, Director (Denver, CO)

    Shaking the Dew from the Lilies was voted in the top five for THE BEST LIVE THEATRE IN 2002 BY Echo Weekly.

    Play by Paula Kamen, directed by Iris Sowlat followed by "Never Go Back" panel

    For more info, see

    This event is co-sponsored by the Chicago Area Women's History Council and Shout Your Abortion 773.

    Play reading at 7:30pm. At 9 PM, panel, "Never Go Back (to When America Wasn't So Great Again)," featuring Jane member Jeanne Galatzer-Levy, pro-choice political expert Aileen Kim, playwright Paula Kamen, and moderated by Alicia Swiz. Reception to follow by the Chicago Area Women's History Center.

    Featuring actors: Amber Ray Snyder, Anna Wolfe, Chloe Bluml, Caitlin McManus, Kaitlin Stewart, Shannon Webber, Whitney Pipes, Erin Caswell, Lyla Whedbee, and Zach Hebert

    THE PLAY: In the current debate about abortion rights, we often forget how dangerous life was for women when abortion was illegal. But in Chicago at that time 45 years ago, women Chicago knew whom to call for help: Jane, the legendary feminist abortion service, also known as "the best-kept secret in Chicago."

    From 1969 to 1972, women who ran “Jane” were mostly unassuming: college students, “hippie housewives,” and antiwar activists. But they led extraordinary double lives, running the most active underground abortion service in modern history, the one safe alternative for about 11,000 women from all backgrounds.

    This play, based on original interviews with women who ran and used this service -- and men who supported it -- tells their story.

    In the panel afterward, we will discuss how to never go back to those perilous days, when America, for women, really wasn't so great. We will focus on a very timely Illinois bill with that goal: House Bill 40, which will likely go to the governor for approval at the end of July. That bill would guarantee that Illinois, an enduring safe haven for choice for the entire Midwest region, uphold abortion rights if Roe v Wade is repealed.

    The director, Iris Sowlat, is a proud company member at Pride Films & Plays. She is a Chicago-based director whose work focuses primarily on feminism, queerness, and (dis)ability. She is also an Artistic Associate at Stage Left Theatre. Iris has directed and/or assistant-directed for Pride Films & Plays, Stage Left Theatre, Broken Nose Theatre, 20% Theatre, The Chicago Fringe Festival, Fury Theatre, and Talif Productions. This summer, Iris is producing and curating SheFest at Pride Films & Plays, and writing and directing Narratives of Achromatopsia for the Chicago Fringe Festival, and will direct the short play Barbarism for Collaboraction's Peacebook festival.


    LOCATION details: Play and panel at the Broadway theater of the Pride Arts Center, at 4139 N. Broadway. (Not their other nearby theater, the Buena, which has a different address). Suggested payment is $10, with half of proceeds going to Chicago Abortion Fund, and half to the Pride Center. Parking is very tough, even maddening, in that area, so we recommend public transportation.
