This dramatic portrait, featuring Still Point Founder/Artistic Director Lisa Wagner-Carollo, follows Dorothy Day from her days as a 17 year-old Greenwich Village bohemian through her later years as a tireless champion of social justice. Haunted by God: The Life of Dorothy Day has been touring the U.S. since May of 1990, and has also been presented internationally at the Pax Christi International Conference in Assisi, Italy in 1995, and at the 1999 Parliament of World Religions in Cape Town, South Africa.
Deep Listening is a one-person play exploring the subjects of death, dying and end of life care. The play conveys valuable insights to caregivers. While conducting research interviews with healthcare providers, playwright Teresa Weed was informed that, “As a culture, we are dying very badly.” This vivid, moving play focuses attention on a stark reality we all face, but which is rarely addressed openly in our society. Deep Listening engages the audience with familiar stories, gentle humor and simple songs, reinforcing palliative education while candidly exploring the reality of what it is like to “look death in the face” on a daily basis.
The True Cost: Stories of Human Trafficking gives voice to the forgotten ones: the people who are forced into sexual servitude; the children who are exploited as slave labor to provide cheap goods sold in our very own neighborhoods; the women and men who are lured into domestic labor that turns out to be entrapment rather than employment. Renowned Chicago playwright Jenny Magnus has created a breathtaking play using the true stories of traﬃcking survivors, obtained through interviews with anonymous volunteer participants. We are currently constructing an information page for this production. In the meantime, please contact Nate Smith at (773) 868-1700 or email@example.com to learn more about booking a show.
