Seven award-winning playwrights (Many Shining Lights) — Paula Cizmar, Catherine Filloux, Gail Kriegel, Carol K. Mack, Ruth Margraff, Anna Deavere Smith, and Susan Yankowitz— have created seven individual monologues into a collaborative work for the theatre based upon personal interviews and oral histories of seven extraordinary women whose work benefits the citizens of their diverse cultures: Russia, Pakistan, Nigeria, Northern Ireland, Afghanistan, Guatemala, and Cambodia. The play is a testament to their extraordinary acts and common humanity in the face of injustice and violence. JOURNEYS is directed by Evan Yionoulis.The seven women whose stories will be told on stage – largely in their own words – have nothing in common besides the trauma and injustice they have faced at the hands of their governments, national institutions or fellow countrymen and their ability to transcend those experiences to become leaders in the fight to end violence against women.Performance Times: October 2 - 19, 2008 WEEK ONE: Oct 2-5 -- Thursday - Sunday @ 8pm and Sunday matinee @ 2:30pm WEEK TWO: Oct 10-12 -- Friday, Sat, Sun @ 8pm and Sat & Sun matinees @ 2:30pm WEEK THREE: Oct 18 & 19 -- Sat & Sunday @ 8pm and Sunday matinee @ 2:30pmTickets $18Visit: www.lamama.org for more information.La Mama E.T.C. 74a East 4th Street New York, NY (212)475-7710
