Stories that Let the Light Come In
Directed by Jeanne Haynes
In Collaboration with Stagebridge
America Untold features Stagebridge Storytellers as part of Times Unseen–The Marsh’s ongoing project to chronicle the current political turmoil and its effects on individual lives. This one night performance showcases the Fall 10-week storytelling class directed by Jeanne Haynes, storytelling performer and teacher, in collaboration Stagebridge Oakland, a senior theater company.
Void of rants or insults, and with barely a mention of the Administration, tellers will present their personal stories impacted by current political issues. Examples: Samir came to this country as an immigrant from Egypt at age 19 and now worries about DACA students; one woman’s untold ever story about her abortion many years ago questions reproductive rights now being threatened; an African American woman relives her school teacher Mother and other “Coloreds” being prevented from voting in the segregated south and expresses concerns about the Voter Integrity Commission tactics.
Honing their tales into powerful succinct bite-size pieces, with music by classical guitarist Karen Sellenger, Stagebridge tellers and their pressing topics are:
Susan Shampanier – Economy
Harry Santi – Endangered Species
Laurie Baumgarten – Global Warming
Stuart Korn – Gun Control
Judy Kennedy – Housing
Samir Saad – Immigration
Sarah Strong – LGBT Rights
Beverly Miles – Racism
Ellen Kaufman – Reproductive Rights
Theresa Nervis – Voter Integrity
Scott Ullman – World War III??
