FIREFLIES 🔥🔥🔥
Olivia hears booms in her head. She is terrified to see how her people are treated by the Jim Crow laws in the South of the early 60’s. She doesn’t see the point of welcoming a colored baby into the world. Is it in their power to make the necessary changes so that the next generation wouldn’t have to suffer?
•
She writes all the reverend’s speeches, that is, her husband’s. People adore him for that. For his charisma and the ability to always say the right words. After a black church is put on fire and whenever a black kid is found dead while being under arrest.
•
So Charles travels through the South while his wife, pregnant with a baby, writes the next speech for the next murder. •

KING LEAR 👧🏽👱🏽‍♀️👩🏻
Actress Lea Koenig is playing the monarch at the Israeli national theater. Interestingly, Glenda Jackson will do the same on Broadway starting February (And she did already in London).
•
This play gets more depressing as you get older. And seeing an older actor play the part is all the more saddening. Does she feel like younger actors get all the juicy parts while she stays behind? I mean she did choose to bite into Lear :) •

BERNHARDT/HAMLET🧝🏻‍♀️💀
The French diva Sarah Bernhardt has one question she desperately needs to answer: Who’s Hamlet⁉️
A youth or an adult? Privileged prince or a miserable orphan? Is he strong or weak?
•
Her previous play failed miserably and now, poor and defeated, she has to reinvent herself in order to gain the love of the public again. Preferably with some cash too.
•
A woman playing Hamlet can either be brilliant or an absolute disaster. Either way it has to have justification. So which one would it be?
•
💬THESE LINES GOT SOME 👏 •
🔸”When a woman does nothing no one cares, when a man does nothing he’s Hamlet”.
🔸”I will not play a flower anymore. And not because I’m old, but because it’s beneath me. It was always beneath me. It’s beneath all women”.

LITTLE ROCK 🎓
It is 1957 in Arkansas. A group of African American students wants to attend Central high school, however the governor wants to refuse the federal law “to protect the colored kids”.
•
They suffer humiliations and violence every single day from the white kids, however when one of them can’t keep her mouth shut anymore and stands up for herself - she’s the one to get thrown away from school.
•
💬FAVORITE QUOTES •
🔸-“The president is afraid that if the white folks see a black soldier protecting the kids it will start a civil war” -“Too late”
•
🔸-What state is the happiest?
-Maryland
•
🔸-What state does most laundry?
-Washington •

Cool it with us at a FREE comedic play reading - Bushwick Starr’s Annex tonight (6th) at 7PM🧞‍♀️🧜🏻‍♀️🧞‍♂️🧜🏽‍♂️ lots of sexy people, bad Jews and AC!!! #playreading #freeevent #bushwick #badjews #popsicle #summer #brooklyn #actorslife #red #comedy #comedyshow #musicstand #free #instagramnyc #instagood
THE HOUSE THAT WILL NOT STAND •
It is 24 hours before the Yankees are taking over New Orleans. They have much more draconian rules than the French and so the black community has to prepare for the possibility that its freedom will be taken away.
•
A woman can become a placage of a white man - which means she is above a slave but below a legal wife. What will they choose?
•
🗨 FAVORITE QUOTES:
⚪"Look at the bright side, you'll get to see him when you die!"
⚪"Your mother loves you, she just has hateful ways of showing it".
⚪-"Did you smile back?"
-"Of course not, I'm Christian, I want him to suffer".

LOG CABIN🏠👩‍👩‍👦🍼👶
•
The most usual looking NYC apartment: Ikea corner sofa, one exposed brick wall, red "statement peace" in the entrance, small kitchen because we order out anyway, "mother in law" plant because it doesn't need a lot of attention. One thing is unusual - there are books floor to ceiling in one corner + ladder. •
As the play unfolds we find out that the characters, 2 lesbians, 2 gay guys, 1 transgender man, want what all "straight" people have - bad marriages, kids and outdoor deck. •
🗨FAVORITE QUOTES:

FAIRVIEW 📻⏯🎂🎈
•
This is Caryl Churchill on staroids. Starts off as a nice family getting ready to celebrate Mama's birthday but then everything goes wrong. And by "wrong" I don't mean burnt birthday cake although that happens too. I mean white privilege, racism, and some more privileges of all kind. This show doesn't allow you to breath until the last word is said. •
🗨FAVORITE QUOTES:
⚪Why do you always have to be the way you are?
⚪Can I ask all the white people to come up on stage and give us their seats?
