“Breaking Glass” is a one-woman play in development that is inspired by the life of Julia Margaret Cameron, an early Victorian photographer. Set in 1874, prior to Cameron's return to India, the audience is invited into Julia's Glass House to sit for one of her photographs.

Julia Margaret Cameron took up photography at the relatively late age of 48. She produced 900 photographs in a 12-year period, capturing 'famous men and fair women' in portraits and tableaus. By experimenting with the art form, she was among the first art photographers and credited with creating the first ‘close-ups.’ Yet, as a woman, she faced fierce criticism.

"Breaking Glass” is produced by Camilla Ross and Emerson Theater Collaborative; directed by Kato McNickle, with production stage management by Carin Jennie Estey. Cultural consultant is Sarbani Hazra. Palzere-Rae appears with permission of Actors’ Equity Association. The event is made possible with support from CT Humanities.
