“Can theatre be a catalyst for social change?” asks the Gulf Coast Chapter of the US National Committee of UN Women. Well, we think so–and it appears that they do, too.
Gulf Coast Chapter, USNC-UN Women, based in Sarasota, Florida, is hosting a reading of the play and a luncheon from 11 am to 2 pm, Saturday, March 12 at the Polo Grill, Fete Ballroom, Lakewood Ranch. The play will be directed by Ria Cooper of the Asolo Theatre and performed by seven of the Gulf Coast community’s activists for change.
Says Bonnie Nelson Schwartz, a producer working to bring the story of SEVEN to the big screen, the event “will play a significant role in the remarkable journey of the play as it travels to more than 30 countries and across the U.S., motivating audiences to take action through its gripping stories of real women.”
Gulf Coast Chapter, USNC-UN Women is dedicated to raising community awareness of the status of women and girls here and abroad.
Tickets to the lunch and play are $45 for USNC-UN Women members; $20 for students; and $50 for non-members. Advance ticket purchase only at www.unwomen-usnc.org/gccevents. Proceeds benefit the advocacy work of the USNC as well as the programs of UN Women.
