Those Women Productions presents:
The six short plays of IN PLAIN SIGHT explore this shadowy territory. Our anthology of original plays includes two vastly different versions of the Cinderella story: the whimsical comedy “Palace Watch” by Kat Meads and the darkly realistic “Pankhadi and the Prince” by Patricia Reynoso. The line-up also includes two contrasting portrayals of notorious mothers: Lee Brady’s tragicomic “Mississippi Medea,” in which a modern Medea appears on her favorite TV talk show, and Mimu Tsujimura’s lyrical drama “My Name Is Mother,” based on the legend of La Llorona. Two short plays by Carol Lashof will round out the evening. They are “When Briseis Met Chryseis,” a romance set against the backdrop of the Trojan War, and “After the Prologue,” in which the Wife of Bath tells you what women really want.
The plays featured in IN PLAIN SIGHT are directed by Norman Johnson, Christine Keating, and Elizabeth Vega. The production features Alicia Bales, Ed Berkeley, Sharon Huff*, Alexandra Lee, Ria Meer, Louel Senores, and Suzanne Vito.
*Member, Actors’ Equity Association; an Equity-approved project.
