The Chicago Mammals Present 3rd Annual ALL GIRLS PROJECT

The Chicago Mammals Present 3rd Annual ALL GIRLS PROJECT This fall The Chicago Mammals return in their third consecutive year of producing fantastical works for women under the umbrella of the All Girl Project- by presenting ALL GIRL EDGAR ALLAN POE - a One Act Festival completely devised, produced, directed, choreographed and performed by women. All pieces are inspired by the works of Edgar Allan Poe and will be interpreted in a wide array of fashions including: movement, music, poetry, dance and monologue.

According to its mission statement, for The Chicago Mammals, the All Girl Project means: "With the ALL GIRL PROJECT the Chicago Mammals are committed to providing extreme and unique opportunities for Chicago actresses to play, produce, devise and perform in roles that are rarely (if ever) performed by women with an emphasis on turning traditional tales into raw, emotive, phantasmagoric concepts which can only be described as 'Mammalian'."

After a wildly successful debut of the ALL GIRL project with ALL GIRL MOBY DICK - hailed as "striking...and intense" by TimeOut Chicago and "visually stunning" by Chicago Theatre Beat- in the fall of 2012, Artistic Director Bob Fisher ramped up his All Girl efforts, continuing the following year with "customized, poetic redemption" (New City Stage) and sold out houses for ALL GIRL FRANKENSTEIN.

ALL GIRL EDGAR ALLAN POE will feature the following pieces: The Raven (adapted and directed by Anne Wilson*), The Tell-Tale Heart (adapted by M.E.H. Lewis, directed by Leigh Barrett), The Black Cat (adapted by Erin Orr*, Amy Harmon and Liz Chase* and directed by Chris Conley), The Pit and the Pendulum (adapted and directed by Charlotte Drover), The Imp of the Perverse (adapted and directed by Sasha Warren*) and The Masque of the Red Death (adapted and directed by Whitney LaMora* and choreographed by Sasha Warren*). As with all other Chicago Mammals productions you can expect sci-fi, horror, and fantasy themes across all performances in this unique and thrilling fall production. Cast for ALL GIRL EDGAR ALLAN POE is: Anne Wilson*, Amy E. Harmon, Whitney LaMora*, Becky Blomgren, Megan Ligeti, Erin O'Shea, Kyla Norton, Morgan Cohen, Meredith Ernst, Arti Ishak, Emily Sharp, Liz Chase*, Carolyn Sinon, Sasha Warren*, Moira Begale, Tracie Dhalke, Erin Orr*, Caitlin Aase, Lauren Stanek, Anna Lee Anderson, Jordan Shomer, Olivia Jaras, Teagan Walsh Davis, and Sam Dedian.
