whatdoesfreemean?, a new play by award-winning human rights playwright Catherine Filloux, follows the journey of an African-American woman serving a long sentence for a non-violent drug offense. When Mary ends up in solitary confinement, she struggles to maintain her sanity. The play takes the audience into her psychic world. We travel alongside her self-guided intellectual and emotional journey into the nature of freedom, both physical and psychological, as Mary’s external and internal experiences unfold on stage in the present, in memory, and in the fantasies that help her survive. Directed by Amy S. Green, the cast includes James Edward Becton*, Brenda Crawley, Justin Jorrell, Galway McCullough*, Liz Morgan*, and Lisa Strum* as Mary.

An American in . . . Kiev? It’s the summer of 1991, and Charlotte Cranford is the first American–and first woman–director at the Kiev Theatre Company. She’s been sent by her university on a cultural exchange to oversee a production of Tennessee Williams’ “A Streetcar Named Desire.” The play’s passions boil over into a real-life love triangle as the streets outside the theatre erupt in violence, leading to Ukrainian Independence. Love, loyalty, commitment, courage, art and Soviet intrigue challenge the old cliche that the show must go on.

Nora’s Playhouse is pleased to announce the first public reading of whatdoesfreemean?, a new play by award-winning playwright Catherine Filloux. Developed in collaboration with Nora’s Playhouse and the John Jay College of Criminal Justice, whatdoesfreemean? takes us into the cell and the mind of its central character, Mary, an African-American woman who is serving time for an undisclosed crime. Her days in solitary confinement are spent trying to keep her sanity in the face of loneliness, indifference, human cruelty, and loss. As she grapples with internal voices that threaten to loosen her grip on reality, anger, outrage, strength, and humor carry Mary through her period of incarceration and beyond.
