Coming this spring to the Live Oak Theater in Berkeley, Those Women Productions presents Shifting Spaces, a trio of new one-act plays about individuals fighting to claim their full human identities. The program includes the world premieres of They/Them by Nick Hadikwa Mwaluko and vessels by Kim Yaged, as well as the west coast premiere of Revelation by Shirley Barrie. The directors are Norman Patrick Johnson, Elizabeth Vega, and Lily Tung Crystal.
These three plays reflect a wide spectrum of feminist perspectives. Each tells a unique story in a bold and captivating voice. Stylistically very different, they all feature characters who fight passionately for and believe courageously in their right to be themselves.
Shifting Spaces will preview on March 23 and run from March 24 to April 8. Performances are Fridays and Saturdays at 8 pm and Sundays at 2 pm at the Live Oak Theater, 1301 Shattuck Avenue, Berkeley, at the corner of Shattuck and Berryman in the “gourmet ghetto” neighborhood of North Berkeley.
Those Women Productions is committed to making theater accessible to audiences regardless of ability to pay. All shows are “choose your own price” with prices ranging from $00.00 to $35.00. Tickets at all price levels are available in advance via Brown Paper Tickets or at the door beginning 30 minutes before show time. All seating is general admission.
