    3rd Annual SWAN Day Celebration --
    "March Madness - Women on the Edge"
    Readings of Short Work and Music by Boston-area Women Playwrights and 
    Boston Playwrights' Theatre
    Saturday Afternoon, March 28, 2009 @ 2-5:30pm

    Come join us for a program of staged readings of new theatre pieces 
    and poetry, and songs created by local Boston playwrights and 
    artists.  This year's theme is Women on the Edge, which was defined 
    very broadly and open to many interpretations.  The work, all new and 
    not previously presented, includes short plays, scenes, monologues, a 
    poem and songs by area artists Rosanna Yamagiwa Alfaro, Kelly DuMar, 
    Dara Eagle, Hortense Gerardo, Kim Hoff, Leslie Powell, Monica Raymond,  Ellen Sullivan, Sandra Weindraub and Debbie Wiess.  Diane Ripstein  will be Mistress of Ceremony for the event.  Some of the Boston-area  theatre scene's favorite directors and actors will be involved.  After the approximately 2-hour program, there will be a party with light refreshments for mingling and socializing.

    This event is part of an International celebration of women artists 
    called SWAN Day, which stands for Support Women Artists Now Day, and  is being organized under the auspices of the International Centre for  Women Playwrights.  The March Madness Boston SWAN event takes place at  the Boston Playwrights' Theatre (BU) located at 949 Commonwealth  Avenue, Boston, on Saturday afternoon, March 29, from 2-5:30pm.  There is no entrance fee, but donations ($5 suggested) at the door are  welcome.  All proceeds of the event will go to The Fund for Women  Artists organization, one of the two groups, which conceived SWAN Day,  to support its efforts.  Last year's show sold out so reservations are  recommended.  For more information or to reserve seats, please contact  Debbie Wiess at 617-437-0352 or

    SWAN Day, established in 2007, is an annual event that takes place on  the last Saturday of March, which is Women's History Month.  The idea 
    for SWAN Day grew out of a collaboration between organizers of The 
    Fund for Women Artists and Women in the Audiences Supporting Women  Artists Now.  For more information about SWAN Day and other SWAN Day events happening around the world, please visit

    The Fund for Women Artists ( is a non-profit 
    organization dedicated to helping women artists get the resources they  need to do their creative work.  Its emphasis is on women in film,  video and theatre.  Over the past decade it has raised over $4 million 
    (including an endowment of $425,000) and built a website that provides  networking, advocacy, and fundraising services to approximately 2,000 
    visitors a day.

    March 8, 2009 8pm - Kitchener's City Hall Council Chambers.

    Like a Terrible Beauty - a scene - Inspired by the Easter Rising of 1916 in Ireland, and the subsequent Anglo-Irish war, and heart-breaking Cival war, comes an account of sorrow, regret, devastation...but always hope.

    We know the stories of Michael Collins.  We know the story of the proclamation.  The women’s stories are sadly missing from much of the history.  This is Maeve’s story, celebrating the strength of the women who participated in this rich history, side by side with the men, and the women who stayed at home, tending the farm, always fearing the worst.

    A tender, funny, lyrical, heart-wrenching play that is simply about people.

    Jennifer Cornish will be reading Maeve and Kathleen Sheehy will be reading Clare.

    Following Act I & Act II there will be a talk-back session lead by Gary Kirkham.

    The audience is free to ask questions, make gentle comments, discuss the pieces presented.

    Donations at the door will be given to The Women's Crisis Services of Waterloo & ICWP.

    FORKS OF IVY, a full-length drama, written and directed by Cass Erickson, will have a staged reading on January 30 and 31, 2009 at the Lowry Lab Theater in St. Paul, Minnesota. The reading is sponsored by Lex-Ham Community Theater.

    Set in a cove in the mountains of southern Appalachia, FORKS OF IVY is the story of an aging patriarch who questions his faith and life in the aftermath of the accidental death of his son. The subsequent dynamics of an unraveling family become intertwined with the arrival of a couple from New York. The play pays homage to contemporary life in southern Appalachia and explores the issues of loss, loneliness, domestic violence, transiency, belonging, spirituality, redemption, and reconciliation.

    FORKS OF IVY was a finalist in the 2006 Trustus Theatre Playwrights’ Festival (Columbia, South Carolina). Trustus Theatre literary manager Jon Tuttle found the play 'utterly Faulknerian . . . in the richness of its language and detail.'

    The Theater Space Project, owners of the Lowry Lab Theater, provided the venue through a generous grant from Travelers Foundation. For more information, see

    The reading is free and will be followed by an author feedback session.
