Theme: Love, Sex and #MeToo

  • Juliette Jeffers
    Tio Pablo. Come meet Tio Pablo as he shares life lessons and breaks down the secrets to being a true Latin Lover….Dominican Style!
  • Mariel Josetta Mickens
    Fishing for Love: Coming Out and Tackling It. This show explores acceptance and understanding of one’s self and all the craziness that goes along with finding that. Religion and faith impacted her view about sexuality and the experiences she had while growing up in Texas.
  • Brittanie Richardson
    Art and Abolition. The story of a woman who moves to Kenya via South Africa and uses the arts to bring healing to other young girls who are undergoing different forms of sexual abuse from molestation to child sex slavery and sex trafficking.
  • Diana Varco
    Shattered. After a life-changing event shatters a young woman’s world, she must examine how her past experiences have shaped her views on sex, sexuality and relationships.

Saturday, March 31 at 3:00 p.m.
Theme: Obsessions

  • Kate Huffman
    I’m Too Fat for This Show. (Performance art) Kate Huffman embodies multiple characters in this excerpt to guide us through two decades of living with an OCD-instilled eating disorder that requires her to live by a strict set of rules and rituals.
  • Ai Yoshihara
    My Own Private River Phoenix. A woman searches for her own River Phoenix and finds him in the man she marries in America.
  • Ella Turenne
    Love, Locs and Liberation. (Storytelling/Theatre) This play weaves together Ella Turenne’s own stories of struggles with identity and beauty. Blending poetry, song and humor, Ella unlocks the history of locs and exposes the hair connection to politics, identity and culture.

Saturday, March 31, 2018 at 8:00 p.m.
Theme: My Mother, My Self

  • Brooke Baumer
    October Baby. What happens when a detailed-obsessed woman tries to time the birth of her daughter to happen in her favorite month of the year? Nine months of chaos – in utero and out! October Baby is a hilarious and poignant look at parenthood and the need to control.
  • Laurel Maya Burt-Kidwell
    Don’t Worry, Momma. (Song/Music) This performer plays the guitar as she sings songs that relate to motherhood.
  • Jennie Fahn
    Under the Jello Mold. Jennie’s mother was a force to be reckoned with — a former dancer never content to merely rehash her past, there was always a story to be embellished, always a name to drop, and always a lesson to teach. Her mother was also hiding a long-held secret.
  • Bellina Logan
    Confessions of a Mulatto Love Child. (Storytelling) This piece chronicles a bi-racial child’s life with her acerbic English actor mother, and the deep bond they forged.

Sunday, April 1, 2018 at 3:00 p.m.
Theme: Angels, Culture and Coming of Age

  • Tangie Ambrose
    Tangie. (Performance art/ Storytelling/ Theatre) The experiences of life ground Tangie. She becomes angry with God. She listens to her angels. She develops and relates to the universe.
  • Sofie Khan
    MexiStani: Growing Up Mexican and Pakistani in America. (Performance poetry; Song/Music; Storytelling) In an excerpt from MexiStani!, Sofie Khan journeys through story bits about everything: her Mexican-Pakistani identity triumphs. Does she favor her Mexican side over her Pakistani side? Does she choose to be Catholic or Muslim? And how do Hip Hop and the LGBTQ community play a role up in this mix?
  • Nairoby Otero
    ‘Til Sunday. About a quinceañera coming of age in New Orleans while trying to understand her role in her community, her country, her Cuban heritage, and where her loyalties lie.
