For two weeks only, March 13 – 24, 2019, Pillsbury House Theatre will premiere She Persists: The Great Divide III. She Persists examines our turbulent political climate through five brand-new 10-minute plays from local playwrights Cristina Florencia Castro, Casey Llewellyn, Oya Mae Duchess-Davis, Philana Omorotionmwan and Aamera Siddiqui.
She Persists is a fresh take on the conversation that began with the popular 2017 production, The Great Divide: Plays for a Broken Nation and continued with 2018’s The Great Divide: Plays on the Politics of Truth. Featuring an all-woman cast, production team and playwright cohort, She Persists: The Great Divide III is a powerful, intersectional look at the place where womanhood and politics collide.

In 2018, Brett Kavanaugh was confirmed to the Supreme Court amid allegations of sexual assault. For the first time in years, Roe v. Wade fell into constitutional danger. At the same time, the #metoo movement sparked a national dialogue around power and consent, and record numbers of women ran for public office and won. In a country continuing to fracture along political fault lines, women were on the frontlines of the divide. Following the tradition of The Great Divide I & II, Pillsbury House Theatre has commissioned five short plays on the state of women in the current political climate. Featuring all-women playwrights, actresses, and production staff, She Persists: The Great Divide III is a theatrical experience by, for, and about women.
Starring Ashawnti Sakina Ford, Audrey Park, Nora Montañez & Sara Richardson.
