Sun: 8/07 – 5:30 pm – Get Real Entertainment-I Am a Black Woman

Michelle Wallace once said, “Being on the bottom we would have to do what no one else has done; we would have to fight the world”. For our main character, the fight is against the worldly images that work to shape her identity and her own narratives. Here, it’s a world of her own making and she is doing everything in her power to make sense of it all without getting too far off track. The ideologies of this world tried its damnedest to define her existence and control her image. Having not only the enduring will and grace to accept what she is given and create something new, but also understanding the extent of her own power. All things considered, “I Am a Black Woman” is the greatest affirmation of all.

Sun: 8/07 – 7:00 pm – Next Stage – Meaningless

Is power meaningless? Is life meaningless? Is everything meaningless? Over 2,000 years ago, the book of Ecclesiastes laid out its case that everything under the sun was like a vapor–meaningless! Now considered one of the most controversial religious texts in the canon, many scholars have tried to explain away its significance. See why this book has inspired everyone from Shakespeare to Samuel Beckett in this one-man stage adaptation. From overwork to overindulgence, The Teacher, performed by OKC-based actor Rodney Brazil, is here to explain the meaningless existence of everything under the sun
