I'm so excited to be playing one of my personal heroes, Hallie Flanagan, the head of the 1930's Federal Theater Project in this staged reading. Mixed Relief is a play about government funding and women artists, and uses interview and verbatim text to tell its story.
The project is produced by the Bay Area Advisory Committee (BAAC) of Actors' Equity, as a benefit for The Actors' Fund. It's also a featured event of Laborfest, the Bay Area's annual July programming commemorating the General Strike of 1934, and the history of organized labor in the Bay.
The reading will take place at the Lorraine Hansberry Theater on July 23 at 7:30pm. Equity has a little more info here.
A Facebook invite to the event is here. To reserve a seat, call 1-877- 232-1913 Box # 874, and leave a message.
Hope to see you on the 23rd!
