Seasonal Special Happenings

Women's Rites

When: Thu., May 22 2014

Constantly on the forefront of promoting women in the arts, Cleveland Public Theatre’s contributions are skillfully displayed in tonight’s debut of Ancestra. Conceived and directed by the masterful Holly Holsinger, Ancestra weaves the historical account of the 1853 National Women’s Rights Convention alongside the deeply personal biography of a contemporary woman. Blending past and present with a multigenerational and multicultural cast, this show offers the full spectrum of womanhood while celebrating the pioneers of women’s rights in America. The show runs through June 7 in Cleveland Public Theatre’s Gordon Square Theatre. Tonight’s performance takes place at 7:30 and tickets are $12 to $28. (Patrick Stoops)
