A Woman Among Women
by Julia May Jonas / Nellie Tinder
NACL Deep Space Residency
August 25, 2018 @ 7:30pm
A response to Arthur Miller’s All My Sons, A Woman Among Women is part of the play-cycle All Long True American Stories, in which Julia May Jonas reimagines canonical American male-experience plays for other people (mostly women). Developed with director / producer Sarah Hughes and consisting of responses to five iconic works by Miller, O'Neill, Shepard, Mamet and Albee, All Long True American Stories gleefully ignores patriarchal constraints, creating an epic theatrical event that imagines a more inclusive and expansive American canon.

HIV: The Three Epidemics
with Dr. Allison Navis & Larry Owens
October 2018 @ CAVEAT
Tickets On Sale Soon
AIDS appeared in 1981 and quickly created a world of fear, destroying countless lives and exposing the deadly power of public stigma along the way. Almost 40 years later, much has changed and yet much work still remains to be done. Three Epidemics uses a mix of science and theatrical multimedia to explore the history of HIV and assess how it evolved from a deadly infection to a chronic disease, how lack of healthcare access and misperceptions help it spread, and how we can use tools of advocacy and awareness to win the fight against AIDS. Part of CAVEAT's Talks Progress Administration series, which pairs academics and scientists with theater directors.
