“That’s What.” She Said, A Megaphone for Female Voices, marks the first collaboration between Duende Theatre Group and Playful Substance. Performances will be held in the backyard of The City Reliquary on July 28, 29, and 30.

Playwrights Kimberly Alu, Dipti Bramhandkar, Molly Horan, Bree O’Connor, and Lauren White deliver an eclectic assembly of five short plays exploring insecurity, biological imperatives, love, recreation, and the shifting landscape of American morals. It is playwrighting without prompts, nets, or constraints–just women having fun saying what is on their minds.

Featuring the acting talents of Daniel Kemper, Weronika Wozniak, Kate Falk, and Vanesa Rendon; and the directing talents of Vanesa Rendon, Bree O’Connor and Matthew Ip Shaw.

Following the July 28th performance, the directors and playwrights will hold a panel discussion exploring the state of women’s representation in the arts. A special guest will moderate.

Suggested donation of $10. Email mailto:DuendeTheatreGroup@gmail.com to reserve tickets.
Beverages available by suggested donation, with beer from Brooklyn Brewery.
All proceeds will support The City Reliquary and the artists.

Healix Collective returns to our backyard on Thursday, July 27th for ALICE WALKER: BEAUTY IN TRUTH, the second installment in their summer screening series. There will be a special reading by NYC poet Camonghne Felix before the film.

Alice Walker: Beauty In Truth is a feature documentary film which tells the compelling story of an extraordinary woman’s journey from her birth in a paper-thin shack in cotton fields of Putnam County, Georgia to her recognition as a key writer of the 20th Century.

Alice Walker made history as the first black woman to win the Pulitzer Prize for fiction for her groundbreaking novel, The Color Purple, which has been transformed from a novel, to a Hollywood movie and latterly to a successful Broadway musical. This universal story of triumph against all odds is not that different from Walker’s own story.

Alice Walker: Beauty In Truth offers audiences a penetrating look at the life and art of an artist, a self-confessed renegade and human rights activist. In 2010, Yoko Ono honored Walker with the LennonOno Peace Award, for her ongoing humanitarian work.

Doors @  7, film starts at sundown
