Alas, Poor Diversity: A Case for the Jubilee
by Brian Sonia-Wallace
From the article: 

“The oppressed are those who are denied the right to make metaphors.”—Augusto Boal

As the discussion around the 2016 Oscars turned the spotlight of mainstream American media once more to race and the exclusion of minority voices from arts, I was reminded of the controversy in Los Angeles surrounding the Jubilee. The Jubilee is an initiative that invites theatres from all over the nation to pledge to produce only work by artists from marginalized populations for one year in 2020: plays by artists of color, women, LGBTQI, and disabled artists. It has divided the theatre community here in Los Angeles, with a vocal minority arguing that it’s discrimination against straight, white men. Their argument is that two wrongs don’t make a right; that the perpetuation of discriminatory tactics against one group is no way to create inclusivity for groups that are traditionally victims of discrimination. The naysayers demand that the word “only” be removed, as in the goal of every theatre producing “only work by [marginalized artists],” removing the one forceful commitment from an already voluntary call to action (read the full wording here).

New Playreading Series presents

written and directed by Emily Atkinson
Thursday, April 7 at 7:30 PM
Acting Studio 1 (T100)

In the year 1632, Dr. Henry Bury, vice chancellor of the University of Cambridge and suspected necromancer, hangs himself on Easter Sunday. Despite the efforts of his dear friend (and perhaps more) James Somerville, the death is ruled a suicide. Three centuries later, in 1913, Charles Cooley, an Irish student, moves into Henry’s old rooms in Corpus Christi College, and finds himself drawn to the rambunctious and privileged Archer siblings, Katherine and Julius, and their friend Mark. Separated by hundreds of years, the two outsiders find themselves connected—haunted— by similar questions of identity and concerns about marginalization. All of these characters will have to choose whether to keep silence or face the consequences of their words as well as their actions, particularly when it comes to how they feel about one another.

"The fairy tales of the Brothers Grimm are turned on their heads in this fast-paced, rollicking ride as two narrators and several actors attempt to combine all 209 stories ranging from classics like Snow White, Cinderella, and Hansel and Gretel to more bizarre, obscure stories like The Devil's Grandmother and The Girl Without Hands. A wild, free-form comedy with lots of audience participation and madcap fun."

Exit Stage Left: an original play by Zoe Kriegler-Wenk

April 8 at 8:00 PM, 
April 9th at 4pm and 8pm
Acting Studio I (T100), Mendenhall Center for the Peforming Arts, Smith College

Do you ever wonder if part of your life is scripted for you? For Kasey, Oscar, Laura and Lexi, this is not just a theoretical question that crosses one’s mind in moments of existential wonderment, but an ingrained part of their reality. While they are not sure to what extent their actions are scripted, they have come to expect the official red and white envelopes with hints about their future. Everyone received their Character Description, Title and Cast List in the mail at the precise moments they were expected. Everyone, that is, except Kasey. Her Cast List brings with it many surprises about the world of the actors, authors and the audience. Exit Stage Left explores social hierarchy, individual ambitions and personal relationships through the allegory of theatre.

Admission is free. No ticket necessary. Please arrive early enough to claim your desired seat.

Black Cat Theater presents DISCO INFERNO!
April 14-15-16  @ 7:00 pm 
April 17 @ 2:00pm
South Hadley High School
153 Newton St, South Hadley 

Come on down to the Disco Inferno and see this incredibly talented cast of young actors set the stage on fire!

The classic tale of the soul-selling Faust is set to the greatest disco hits of the 1970's.  Grabbing that jive old story and injecting it with groove, Disco Inferno is chock-full of the songs that defined a generation. Jack is an aspiring musician who wants nothing more than to be famous, so signing away this thing called a soul is a small price to pay. But Jack soon finds all that glitters isn't gold on the other side, especially if you're all out of love.

What would visitors from another world think if they looked at the race history of the United States? In Collidescope 2.0: Adventures in Pre and Post Racial America, which runs at the UMass Amherst Department of Theater from April 14 to 23, an alien species attempts to make sense of a subject fraught with inherent misperceptions, ironies and contradictions. Taking an “alien” view of this aspect of human behavior, the gaze of Collidescope places these issues under a microscope. Traveling from the Civil War to the Civil Rights Movement, exploring the Pre-Revolutionary War era when freedmen and slaves contemplated their rights in a soon-to-be independent nation, then back to the present day, this work creates a cubistic frame, revealing different angles from which to observe America’s troubled “peculiar” history and its on-going, violent consequences.

We will have post-show conversations on April 16 and April 20-23. Stay tuned for details about topics and guest respondents, and check our website for updates as the event approaches.

April 15, 16, 21, 22, 23 at 7:30 PM in Theatre 14

The Wall Street Journal calls Our Lady of Kibeho "The most important new play of the year.” Set in 1981, a village girl in Rwanda claims to see the Virgin Mary. Ostracized by her schoolmates and labeled disturbed, everyone refuses to believe, until the impossible starts happening again and again. Skepticism gives way to fear, faith, and fate, causing upheaval in the school community and beyond. The New York Times calls this play "Transfixing!... has the gripping intensity of a thriller!"

"If you’ve never experienced Sarah Ruhl’s work before — or if you’ve wondered what all the fuss over the lauded American playwright is about — Melancholy Play is a good place to start. This early whimsical, surrealistic, even absurdist somewhat in the mode of Eugene Ionesco. You worry that bad things happen to good people? Here really strange things happen to all people...Giddy as it is, Melancholy Play actually affords considerable psychological insight." - Dallas News

Eastworks' 121 Club (116 Pleasant Street, Easthampton)

Finally, an improv show for the WHOLE FAMILY! Happier Valley Comedy is proud to present this high energy show running on positivity and audience suggestions.

with Ashley Malloy as Rachel Corrie 
Sunday, April 17th, 7PM
121 Club, Eastworks, Easthampton, MA, 116 Pleasant Street
Tickets $7/students, $15/adults 
Purchase online

Tickets can also be purchased for $10/students and $20/adults at the door. *Online ticketing is preferred for seating plan purposes*

The one person show My Name is Rachel Corrie, edited from Rachel's emails and journal entries by the late Alan Rickman and editor in chief of The Guardian, Katherine Viner, chronicles the life of the 23 year old American Peace Activist who traveled to Gaza in 2003 with the International Solidarity Movement to defend Palestinian homes from being demolished. It was there, on March 16th, 2003 that she was crushed to death by an Israeli bulldozer while protecting her host's home from being destroyed by the Israeli army. 

This award winning critically acclaimed show is performed by Ashley Malloy and is directed by Josh Perlstein. 

Over the course of the play, Rachel matures from an insightful young girl listing the millions of things she wants to be when she grows up, to a scattered adolescent immersed in the manic search for self while battling boys and an over-involved mom, to a young woman determined to pursue peace and justice in a place she's never been for people she's never met, as she constantly questions herself, her country and the world around her, and what it is to be human.

  2. I like theatre so much. When I was a student my teacher gave me a ticket on Hamlet presentation. I was pleasantly surprised. All the actors were played delightful. When I became an adult I decided to go there again. This site helped me to buy tickets. I want to advise you to visit presentation of William Shakespeare. I promise you will get great emotions after viewing.
