#HealMeToo Festival Presents: Truth And Reconciliation of Womyn–curated by Tonya Pinkins
Tony Award-winner Tonya Pinkins presents three Sunday evening staged readings from Truth and Reconciliation of Womyn, an anthology of restorative narratives by leading intersectional feminist playwrights. Each evening will present a different collection of ten-minute plays and songs that address historical and contemporary stories of the oppression of (and by) womyn – and offer paths to healing.
An interactive experience with pre-show and post-show questionnaires and facilitated talk-backs after each performance, TRW’s mission is building bridges to an oppression free world.
