On With Living and Learning--OWLL
in collaboration with Fort Point Theatre Channel
Cambridge YMCA, 820 Massachusetts Avenue, Cambridge, MA
Thursday, March 19 - Saturday, March 28
In 2013, On With Living and Learning (OWLL) premiered Hidden Faces of Courage, with full houses every night for this workshop production.
Now OWLL in collaboration with Fort Point Theatre Channel presents a remixed and reimagined Hidden Faces of Courage, preceded by a staged reading of A Lot On Our Minds, reflections from youth about their experiences with incarceration and police interaction.
The creative pursuits of Fort Point Theatre Channel’s 15 artistic directors extend far beyond our collective work. Here are a few of our upcoming projects:
Olivia Brownlee, writer, singer, and thespian, continues her Singles Project, a commitment to produce one recording of an original song per month for the rest of her life. And check out her work with Music as a Second Language.
Jaime recently taped a short segment that may appear on Saturday Night Live soon. Follow @fortpointtc on Twitter for an update.
Mary Driscoll and her organization On With Living and Learning, Inc., (OWLL) is mounting a new version of Hidden Faces of Courage in March, along with a stage reading of A Lot On Our Minds, a new play she is writing with youth. A Lot On Our Minds also will be presented in March at Emerson College at a student festival on performing arts and social justice.
Ian W. King is designing lights for Hidden Faces of Courage and Anne Loyer is designing the set.
Nathan Troup’s upcoming directorial projects include Cavalli’s opera La Calisto, Simpson College, February 13-15; The Billy Goats Gruff children’s opera, Opera Iowa!, Winter/Spring; Stravinsky's The Rake's Progress for the Boston Conservatory, March 26-29; and Mozart’s The Abduction from the Seraglio, Emmanuel Music, Boston, May 9.
