Join us for the ONLY glimpse of TNW's upcoming Overture Center production "Step Right Up, Ma'am: Stories of Resilience".  TNW Producers Donna Peckett and Danielle Dresden will preview the play, which shares three stories of strong women who eventually come together to discover ways of moving forward.  The pieces include: 

What Couldn't Be Said: Written by Madison-based poet and novelist Dale M. Kushner, this piece focuses on experiences of women in myths and history. 

Henny & the Strawberries: Written by TNW co-producer Danielle Dresden, this piece is based on the real-life experiences of Dresden's cousins as Jewish children during World War II. 

Say It Out Loud, I’m Black and I’m Proud:  A monologue written by Madison Poet Laureate 2008-2011 Fabu Phillis Carter, this piece is all about notable Black women in history and their connection to Wisconsin.  

Nedra Bobo-Boyles, Liz Light, and Atlanta-based actor Eileen Koteles will be performing the pieces at the Overture Center.  Performances in Overture Center’s Promenade Hall are set for 7:30 pm on Friday and Saturday, June 21 and 22, and 3:00 pm on Saturday and Sunday, June 22 and 23. Tickets are available through the Overture Center Box Office.

This program will be live-streamed for those who cannot attend in person.
