It's no surprise that New York City's Women's Project and Productions have a mini-festival cooked up to celebrate Women's History Month in March. Twelve short plays are on the bill for the two-day presentation March 13-14 at the company's theatre.
Seeking defining moments in the lives of famous and infamous women, Sweet Motions looks at the likes of Amelia Earhart, Madame Mao and Anne Sexton and includes adaptations of "Love, Loss and What I Wore," Donna Tartt's "The Secret History" and a play by P.J. Gibson.
Directing the twelve plays will be Cecelia Antoinette, Nancy S. Chu, Marya Cohn, Heather de Michele, Jennifer Uphoff Gray, Monika Gross, Anne Kauffman, Sonoko Kawahara, Mahayana Landowne, Victoria Pero, Renee Philippi and Allison Eve Zell.
A $5 contribution is suggested. The Women's Project and Pruductions Theatre is located at 424 West 55th Street. For schedule information, call (212) 765-2105.
