Third speaker added to #MeToo Play Festival panel discussion

Karla Altmayer, cofounder of Healing to Action, will be joining the post-show discussion on Sunday, May 20 about #MeToo issues raised by the six short plays presented in the 2nd Act Players’ #MeToo Play Festival.

Playwrights Jean Waller and Carol Saller also will be on the panel which will be chaired by 2nd Act Players’ Cofounder Carolyn Calzavara and also feature K. Sujata, CEO of the Chicago Foundation for Women.

Chicago-based Healing to Action began in 2016 to support worker leaders in developing meaningful responses to gender violence in their communities.

Karla, an attorney, is a national expert on workplace sexual violence and trauma-informed community building.

“We want the plays we present to be just the start of a broader discussion on #MeToo issues and so have invited in these impressive guests who have experience dealing with these issues to discuss them with our playwrights and our audience,” explains Frank.
