Immediately following each performance, we will be holding a conversation between the cast and audience.  This will be an opportunity for the audience to ask questions about the creative process, the performance, the performer's stories, etc.   We hope you'll join us!


Soul Play is a transformational theatre project with the mission to create and perform an original piece of theatre that is inspired by the participants’ personal stories and intended to spark positive transformation in both performer and audience.


Our collaborative process began weeks ago with informal storytelling, and then we mined those stories for common themes - prioritizing those that reflected our vulnerabilities and resilience.   Selected stories were then embodied and adapted into theatrical form for the purpose of crafting a final performance for our audiences.


As an audience member, what you will witness are six courageous women who - for the first time - are performing and sharing important stories from their lives.  These stories hold significant meaning for each performer, and they are ready for their stories to be heard and SEEN by you.  Thank you for being with us and sharing in this unique and special gathering.
