Piece Her Together @ the EDGE theater

Friday, October 20, 7pm
Saturday, October 21, 7pm
Sunday, October 22, 3pm

What makes a person who she is? Who does she seek to become? What objects in her world help her get there? What forces conspire to stop her? How do those around her influence how she is perceived? Piece Her Together features soprano Amanda DeBoer Bartlett in a fully-staged theatrical production of two mono-dramatic works: Eliza Brown’s The Body of the State, a portrayal of Juana of Castile's imprisonment at the hands of her family, and Katherine Young’s When stranger things happen, a noir meditation on loss, myths of femininity, and the potential of the imagination.
