June 11th, 7:30 p.m. – A Voice of My Own
On June 11 at 7:30 p.m. at the Players’ Ring, Generic Theater will read A Voice of My Own, a play by Elinor Jones. The Players’ Ring is at 105 Marcy Street, Portsmouth NH. For information, call 603-436-8123 or visit www.playersring.org. This reading is free and open to the public.
Jones’s 1979 play gives a tour of women writers throughout history from Sappho to Lillian Hellman. Jones describes the play as “a story of how women became writers, how they emerged from the protective cloak of male psuedonyms and began to speak” out of the passion to make themselves heard.
5 actresses play many writers, including Lady Murasaki, George Sand, the Brontë sisters, Virginia Woolf, and Dorothy Parker. Susan Turner directs the reading, which features Barbara Hilton, Diane Ficarra, Cathy Wolff, Laurie Torosian, and Peggi McCarthy.
