Brava presents the workshop presentation of UNTOLD, a theatrical adaptation by Lisa Marie Rollins and Susan Ito. Directed by Lauren Spencer.
UNTOLD: What are the stories and myths told about cis/trans/ genderqueer women's bodies, about motherhood, shame, fear, respectability? How do bodies take on the burdens of holding these myths? Beyond "choice" UNTOLD showcases the unique stories of women who have relinquished children to adoption, queer & trans women, women of color, an abortion provider and other women who have chosen not to bear children.
UNTOLD is a theatrical adaptation of Untold Stories, a collection curated by the Sea Change Project. The book explores the cost of holding and hiding the secrets and explores the ways women are taught to carry shame and stigma, and eventually heal by coming out of isolation. UNTOLD provides an intimate look at experiences rarely heard outside of internal activist or medical circles.
