June Bride, written and performed by Sara Felder, kicks off the "Women in Theatre" series at A Contemporary Theatre (ACT) in Seattle.
The work is scheduled to run Mar. 27-April 12.
Felder's work is about her "traditional Jewish lesbian wedding," as she calls it. In telling the tale of the nuptials, she incorporates knife-flinging and scarf-tossing (among other things) into the action.
Upcoming "Women in Theatre" productions include Eve Ensler performing her 1997 Obie Award-winner, The Vagina Monologues, April 23-May 10; and Claire Bloom in her one-woman show about notable British actresses throughout the ages, Enter the Actress, April 16-19.
Finally, the "Women Playwrights Festival" will include readings of plays by six female playwrights: Darrah Cloud, Kia Corthron, Migdalia Cruz, Joann Farias, Naomi Iizuka and Lizzie Olesker. The festival readings are scheduled for May 16-21. Performances of June Bride are at the Bullitt Cabaret. For times and tickets, $20, call the ACT Box Office at (206) 292-7676.
