WomanSpeak - February 1 st - 7 pm in the Karen Joy Theater
WOMANSPEAK By GLORIA GOLDSMITH is a play about the lost history of American women. A Contemporary Woman is in search of her roots. Out of the past, Abigail Adams, Sojourner Truth, Susan B. Anthony, Margaret Sanger, Eleanor Roosevelt and others show her that she is part of a great tradition of women who contributed to our history. Originally produced for the California Commission on Rights, it was later presented at the Roxy Theatre in Hollywood with Jane Fonda in the leading role.
This is our theatre director, Karen Moore’s last year before she officially retires from Upland Hills School. She is a founding teacher and has spent her life building this school through her love of theater arts, literature, writing and so much more. Karen has always been a fierce advocate for equal rights for women and first directed this play in 1980. Some of the original cast members are back for this one night, special encore performance.
Please join us in the Karen Joy Theatre on February 1st at 7:00pm. Be prepared for a thoughtful and surprising evening, followed by a lovely "afterglow" with Karen and the cast.
* Because of the play's mature theme, we do not recommend that children younger than 12 years old attend the performance.*
Tickets are $10 and will be purchased at the door.
