Tickets are now available for the 2nd act Players’ 2019 Women’s Empowerment One-Act Play Festival which will run weekends from May 11 through May 26.
The festival features two plays that look at female characters rising above adversity and stereotypes.
Intentions follows main character Katherine on her road to recovery from a massive past trauma, The script was named the winner of the 2nd Act Players’ 2019 One-Act Play Script Competition. Jerome Jagielski of Fontana, Wi., is the winning author of Intentions.
A Matter of Gender by Sloane Drayson-Knigge, also will be performed at the festival. A Matter of Gender is a humorous look at pre-conceptions about gender roles, including what some may consider the ultimate gender role. Its main character is a hotshot Broadway director desperate to cast the lead role in a new play about God. But he can’t seem to find the right actor, until one day…
“Audiences will be seeing two very dynamic plays at the festival, one from a new playwright, the other from an established author, but both with very important points to make about women’s empowerment,” says 2nd Act Players’ Creative Director John N. Frank. “This festival follows our #MeToo Play Festival in 2018 that focused on #MeToo issues. This year, we want to go beyond that to show women rising above challenges and changing perceptions in the process.”
Tickets are $22 in advance, $25 at the door on day of show. Saturday shows are at 7:30, Sundays at 3 p.m. at the 2nd Act Players theater in Northminster Presbyterian Church, 2515 Central Park Ave., Evanston.
