Gethsemane Herron-Coward & Katherine Wilkinson
July 31-Aug 3
Writer, activist, Black, lesbian, poet, warrior. With the strength of dozens of women, Audre Lorde writes her last poem before illness stills her pen. This production is built with and performed by an ensemble of women who celebrate Audre Lorde's legacy and who are committed to building the future embodied by Lorde's visceral poetry and tireless activism. LORDES asks the question: How do we feed ourselves in a world where we are meant to starve?
Written by Gethsemane Herron-Coward
Directed by Katherine Wilkinson
Produced by Maryl McNally and Alida Rose Delaney
