Mildred's Umbrella presents FEMFEST: Isrealwith the support of the Consulate General of Israel to the Southwest. FEMFEST HOUSTON: Voices of Israel, is a weekend of staged readings by female Israeli playwrights. The series consists of three Houston premiere readings playing December 7 and 8, 2019, at the JCCs Joe Frank Theatre. This project is the inaugural reading series in an effort to highlight new work by women from around the globe. The first play, O GOD, by the late Anat Gov, shows us what would happen if God walked into a therapists office. Ella, a psychotherapist with problems of her own, has a turbulent relationship with God. Imagine her skepticism, anger and fear when God chooses her, insisting she help him solve his problems in just one hour. Directed by Elizabeth Keel. The second play, MATERNITY by Hana Vazana Grinwald, is an experimental look at the thousands of babies who vanished from their families new immigrants from Yemen who were living in refugee camps in Israel in the 1950s. Maternity brings the silenced voices of the mothers of the abducted children to life, and finds a connection between them and the immigrant mothers of today. Directed by Leighza Walker. The last play, VERSACE by playwright and journalist, Michal Aharoni, tells a story of love among criminals in the witness protection program. This energetic comedy will finish the series. Directed by Jon Harvey. Talkbacks with the cast, Artistic Director of Mildreds Umbrella, and representatives from the Consulate General of Israel, Office of Cultural Affairs will take place after each performance.
