The Word @ The Road presents a virtual reading of Jennie Webb’s Space Available, directed by Mia Y. Anderson.
This is the story of Jane, who’s managed to survive an absurd litany of profound misfortunes in a world where the words “womanhood” and “motherhood” are used interchangeably. But when she comes face to face with a surreal future that no one should have to live with, she takes a closer look at what it means to have options. Space Available is a play about a woman’s place and what (& who) we let define us.

“Until the Flood” premiered November 15 and is available until 2023. This video is free to the public at www.ctgla.org/
“Until the Flood” which was performed at the Kirk Douglas Theatre in January, 2020, explores a community in turmoil following the fatal shooting of Michael Brown, an unarmed black teenager, by a white police officer in Ferguson, Missouri. Written and performed by Dael Orlandersmith and directed by Center Theatre Group Associate Artistic Director Neel Keller, “Until the Flood” draws on Orlandersmith’s interviews with residents across the Greater St. Louis area to create composite characters that reflect a wide range of perspectives and experiences of race to discuss the roots of unrest and the search for healing.
“Until the Flood,” was originally commissioned and produced by The Repertory Theatre of St. Louis, and subsequently produced around the United States and in Ireland, Scotland and England, with the same performer, director and creative team. Center Theatre Group partnered with Rattlestick Playwrights Theater, A Contemporary Theatre (ACT), Denver Center for the Performing Arts, Goodman Theatre, Milwaukee Repertory Theater, Portland Center Stage and Repertory Theatre of St. Louis to present the All Arts televised streaming production of “Until the Flood.” The presentation uses video footage from the Rattlestick Playwrights Theatre production.

Alexis Roblan and The Tank Present
AN AUDIO / VISUAL EXPERIENCE
July 22 – August 14, 2021
Four adult sisters can’t agree on anything.
Did mom make sweet potatoes with marshmallows or thyme?
What did Grandma’s face look like?
Didn’t we have a brother once?
Wasn’t his name Samuel?
SAMUEL – a new audio-visual experience for the theatre – invites audience members to listen to audio scenes on their own devices as they explore an unnerving visual world of collective loss, existential fear, and the everyday trauma of family relationships. Fashioned after a self-guided audio museum tour, each observer will allow the immersive soundscape in their ears to guide their journey as the sisters struggle to maintain their connections to themselves, each other, and an ever-shifting sense of reality.
July 22 (Thursday) - August 14 (Saturday)
