Words = Change: A Literary Theatrical Performance
Wed, April 26, 2017, 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM CDT
"Words = Change" — a collaboration between Stories on Stage and The Voices and Faces Project — will feature memoir, poetry, creative non-fiction, and fiction that highlights the impact of inequality, injustice, and gender-based violence on young girls and women. Read aloud by young professional actors, these pieces were crafted by teen and young adult graduates of the The Voices and Faces Project’s “Stories We Tell” testimonial writing workshops offered at Chicago’s Juvenile Temporary Detention Center, Young Women's Leadership Charter School, University of Chicago, Barnard College, and Northwestern University.
"Words = Change" is produced by Kathe Telingator, founder of Stories on Stage, directed by Stories on Stage ensemble member Michael E. Myers, and made possible through a grant from the Emerson Collective.
