My evenings and weekends have been filled with rehearsals for the new show I'm working on. LORDES is being presented at the New Ohio ICE FACTORY Festival 2019 at the end of the month. It's the third time I am working on this show (or a version of it) and I love it!
There are four shows coming up: July 31- Aug 3 (Wed - Sat) and all shows will be at 7 PM. Tickets are available here (It's $20 for most of us and $16 for students with ID, OR you can use my promo code LORDES15 to get $15 tickets - but you have to use the code until Saturday, the 27th)
The address of the theater is:
New Ohio Theatre
154 Christopher Street
New York, NY 10014
If you like to make more informed decisions and don't want to come just because I'm in it, I totally get it ;-)
Here is a synopsis of the show: Writer, activist, Black, lesbian, poet, warrior. With the strength of dozens of women, Audre Lorde writes her last poem before illness stills her pen. This production is built with and performed by an ensemble of women who celebrate Audre Lorde's legacy and who are committed to building the future embodied by Lorde's visceral poetry and tireless activism. LORDES asks the question: How do we feed ourselves in a world where we are meant to starve?
