Kudos to the Mira Costa Cast and Crew of SEVEN!

Director Tracy Williams had a huge vision:  To create a production of SEVEN that captured the various worlds of the women in the play, to show the people and political positions they were up against, and to use everything at her disposal–masks, movement, design elements–to do it.

The production of SEVEN at Mira Costa College in San Diego is unusual in that the play is usually done in very straightforward presentational documentary style.  But this version of SEVEN shows that the play can also be highly theatrical.

To pull off the high spectacle, Tracy worked with a cast of 31 actors–two actors for each woman (one to voice the text and one to provide the movement), plus an ensemble of actors to portray everyone from the protesters and police at the Burntollet March to the press to the jirga to the refugees escaping the Taliban.
