The Clinic – a play by Acting Out & Transgressive Theater Opera
February 13 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm
THE CLINIC is an all-too-relevant story of a Women’s Healthcare Clinic that suffers the most catastrophic censure. You will fall in love with the women who will not give up in their quest to provide women with the medical means to exercise their legal rights.
Here’s the Facebook event:
This reading of Will Brumley’s play about a womans health clinic that suffers harassment and is finally bombed will be produced by Transgressive Theatre-Opera, in association with Acting Out. TT-O’s Producing Artistic Director, Aaron Hunt, will direct. AO’s Executive Director and Board President Caroline Shaul is the assistant director. A substantial percentage of ticket sales and related donations will be funneled to local and national organizations committed to the support of Womens Reproductive Healthcare.
For the first time in our history, Transgressive Theatre-Opera will tell a story that, while operatic in scope, sings only from the heart. This is NOT an opera. This is a new play. A story for RIGHT now.
A tale of women you know,
Women to whom you are related.
A story of women you love.
Maybe even your own story.
Transgressive Theatre-Opera is one of Chicago’s premiere storefront opera companies.
Acting Out is a new advocacy group which partners with performing arts organizations to choose and program socially and politically relevant performances that attract politically aware and active audiences, both growing the organizations audience base and providing guidance and assistance to ensure that theatre stories for today can be told without fear of a financial loss. The resultant productions give back via the donation of a substantial percentage of the proceeds to organizations that benefit those in need according to the subject matter of the offering.
Doors open at 6:00pm, the play will start at 6:30pm, followed by a talkback. There will be a silent auction, a raffle, and a cash bar.
