Laurel Thatcher Ulrich & More Join Talk-Backs for TWO-HEADED, May 11 + 19

April 25
6:35 AM 2012


GAN-e-meed Theatre Project has announced the special guests for talk-backs following performances of TWO-HEADED, including Pulitzer Prize winner Laurel Thatcher Ulrich.

Opening this Saturday, April 28 in Brattleboro, VT, performing May 5 in Greenfield, and landing at the Boston Center for the Arts May 10-19, every performance of TWO-HEADED is followed by a talk-back with the cast, and now special guests.

- Friday May 11: Twelfth-generation Mormon Janika Dillon (Masters in Organizational Behavior and International Development and mother of 4) and friends open a window into the lives of women in the LDS church today, following the 8pm performance.

- Saturday May 19: Pulitzer Prize winner Laurel Thatcher Ulrich (Harvard 300th Anniversary University Professor, author of Well-behaved Women Seldom Make History) joins us following the 3pm matinee to discuss the reality of women’s lives in Pioneer times.

Two-Headed by Julie Jensen is set in Utah, 1857. 127 West-bound pioneers die in the Mountain Meadows Massacre. The mass murder haunts Mormon daughters Lavinia and Hettie as they grow from friends, to mothers, to sister-wives. Tethered to their polygamous doctrine and to the men who killed in its name, can the women reconcile their faith with the truth?
