Artemisia Theatre to Present Planned Parenthood of Illinois Night at TITLE TEN

The 7:30 p.m. performance of Title Ten will be followed by a panel discussion featuring Mariana Thomas of Planned Parenthood of Illinois.

Artemisia Theatre will present Planned Parenthood of Illinois (PPIL) Night at Title Ten, Saturday, December 3 at Theater Wit, 1229 W. Belmont Ave., in Chicago's Lakeview neighborhood.

The 7:30 p.m. performance of Title Ten will be followed by a panel discussion featuring Mariana Thomas, Program Manager, Black Organizing Program, Planned Parenthood of Illinois. Thomas advocates for access to safe and affordable reproductive healthcare for Black communities throughout Illinois.

Also on the panel are Myesha-Tiara, Artistic Director, Perceptions Theater, and a member of Artemisia's leadership coalition, and Title Ten playwright/co-director Julie Proudfoot.

Title Ten is a searing and powerful new play about the the struggle for abortion rights in America. Two actors, Melanie McNulty and Kaitlyn Cheng, play eight radically different women who share deeply personal stories about their fight for autonomy over their own bodies, documenting the battle to protect abortion rights in America, from 1978 to now.

Colin Douglas of ChicagoTheatreReview.com calls Title Ten "a thoughtful play that should be seen by everyone, women and men. It's a presentation that fully examines the issues that continue to unfold in America today. And it truly shares the stories of so many women and amplifies every divergent voice." (Read the full review.)

Title Ten is co-directed by Julie Proudfoot and Willow James. Performances run through December 18: Thursday through Saturday at 7:30 p.m., Sunday at 2:30 p.m. Theater Wit is located at 1229 W. Belmont Ave., in the Belmont Theatre District in Chicago's Lakeview neighborhood.

Review: LADY DAY AT EMERSONS BAR AND GRILL at Mercury Theater Chicago Photo
What did our critic think of LADY DAY AT EMERSON’S BAR AND GRILL at Mercury Theater Chicago? To say Alexis J. Roston's performance as Billie Holiday in LADY DAY AT EMERSON'S BAR AND GRILL is a masterclass in acting and singing is no exaggeration. Roston gives the kind of lived-in, seamless performance that only comes from knowing the material intimately well, and indeed, it's a role she's played many times before.
