WELLESLEY COLLEGE THEATRE presents

 

Silent Sky by Lauren Gunderson, directed by Marta Rainer

April 23rd - 26th, 2020 

@ 7PM on Thursday, Friday, Saturday & @ 2PM on Saturday & Sunday

The true story of 19th-century astronomer Henrietta Leavitt explores a women's place in society during a time of immense scientific discoveries, when women's ideas were dismissed until men claimed credit for them. Social progress, like scientific progress, can be hard to see when one is trapped among earthly complications; Henrietta Leavitt and her female peers believe in both, and their dedication changed the way we understand both the heavens and Earth.   

Tickets:

$15 General Admission | $10 for Seniors, Students, Staff/Faculty | FREE to BOW and MIT students

This feminist musical comedy is presented by the collective of award-winning performer/writer/directors who make up this company, founded and led by comedian Katie Goodman.

Since Broad Comedy first performed at Wellesley College more than a decade ago, the group has had an off-Broadway residency at SoHo Playhouse; appeared at 54 Below, Joe’s Pub, Caroline’s on Broadway; been named a “Top Ten Comedy Pick” at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Scotland; and headlined fundraisers for Planned Parenthood, the ACLU, LGBTQ+ orgs, Democratic fundraisers, and women’s health organizations.

Katie Goodman—company director, author, keynote speaker, podcaster, improviser, HuffPo front-pager, and O, The Oprah Magazine contributor—was founder and director of the National Women’s Theatre Festival in Los Angeles and artistic director of the Philadelphia Women’s Theatre. It’s high time we have the group back to enjoy the fruits of their recent labor and the development of their feminist humor!

Wellesley Repertory Theatre proudly Presents: boom

by Peter Sinn Nachtrieb, directed by Marta Rainer

January 16 - February 9, 2020

Ruth Nagel Jones Theatre 

Evenings @ 7pm on Thursday, Friday, Saturday

Matinees @ 2pm on Saturday & Sunday

"Sex to Change the Course of the World" - a grad student's online personal ad lures a mysterious journalism student to his subterranean research lab under the pretense of an evening of "no strings attached" sex. But when a major global catastrophic event strikes the planet, their date takes on evolutionary significance and the fate of humanity hangs in the balance. Will they survive? What about the fish in the tank? And who is that woman pulling levers and playing the timpani? An epic and intimate comedy that spans over billions of years, boom explores the influences of fate versus randomness in the course of one's life, and life as we know it on the planet.

"From pants-around-the-ankles comedy to hipster Twilight Zone takeoff...boom is imaginative and easy to like." -The New Yorker
