 PLAY BY and ABOUT WOMEN----    THINKING AHEAD ABOUT GENDER 

WHAT: TALKING WITH  (a play) by Jane Martin  

WHEN March 18, 19, 20, 21 and 25. 26, 27  (live & streaming) 

USEFUL INFORMATION: 

A series of ten different stories acted by ten different women; each is a monologue. Each scene is completely different, yet each one deals with the individual's "aloneness" in relation to cultural and social expectations. Every story is appropriate to 2021 as each of us have had to spend more and more time isolated from others.  The scenes culminate in the last story in which the tattooed woman relates how a knife-cut on her face made her "visible" to others; her new mission is to pass along this gift to other “invisible" women. 

10 MONOLOGUES: 

As Actor prepares for the play to begin, she demands the right to see her audience  

Housewife vacuums while dressed as a character from OZ because of her need to escape reality 

Daughter shares the pain when a loved one leaves by dying--as they let go, we want to hold on. 

Woman bronco rider bemoans the Disneyfication of the Rodeo, from real to entertaining illusion 

Young woman twirls a baton as a form of sending her prayers to God 

Woman uses light as an exquisite metaphor as she slowly turns off multiple lamps onstage 

Young woman from a family of religious snake handlers explains her faith 

Woman, in and out of labor contractions, defends her choice to give birth to a child with challenges 

Homeless woman’s perfect dream of living in MacDonald’s helps her make it through the day 

Tattooed woman: a facial knife-cut scar inspired her commitment to change other “invisible” women
