Nine artists will share their experiences as survivors of sexual violence, intimate partner violence, and gender-based discrimination in Connective Theatre Company’s ME TOO MONOLOGUES, to be performed October 24 – 26 at Awakenings, 4001 N. Ravenswood, Chicago.
The monologues and group pieces were written by the cast through a series of writing workshops conducted in partnership with Awakenings, which is an arts organization dedicated to making visible the artistic expression of survivors of sexual violence. These pieces were brought together to create a performance of healing, empowerment, and empathy. The performances will be free, and seats will be available on a first-come, first served basis. Donations will be gladly accepted, and all donations will be given to Awakenings.
The program will be directed by Connective Theatre Company ensemble member Leah Huskey and the cast includes Radcliffe Adler, Valerie deGroot, Chase Hauser, Tehilla Newman, Wendy Parman, Ramona Pozek, Bianca Thompson, and Nikki Thompson. Lena Romano is Assistant Director and Jeri Frederickson is Director of Writing Workshops.
