“With dramaturgy by Hannah Jane Walker and Caroline Horton, two really terrific artists in their own right, this experimental autobiographical piece is written and read by Rachel Mariner, an American artist living in Cambridge. Going out with the support of Cambridge Junction, that little powerhouse of often off the wall activity, the piece is billed as a magical realist #MeToo story which touches on myths ancient and modern, the activities of lawyers and Occupy activists to consider the nature of empathy and justice and put the audience in the position of a jury.”

Overview

It rips through Bluebeard, Mary Beard, Evangelical Christians, Occupy activists, lawyers in Washington, moms in Cambridge, the possibility of justice and you, the audience, as a kind of jury.

Tarana Burke started #metoo to create empowerment through empathy. Can that really be a kind of power? Now? For us all?
