On June 20th, 2022 at 7:30 PM, at Studio Playhouse in Montclair, NJ, come see “Destigmatized: A Night of True Stories for Women Refusing to Go Back”.
Come see a night of original pieces written by members of both companies!
The event is free to attend, but if you would like to show some support you can send in donations. All proceeds will go to benefit The Planned Parenthood Action Fund. The Planned Parenthood Action Fund (PPAF) is the advocacy and political arm of Planned Parenthood, fighting to advance and expand access to sexual health care and defend reproductive rights. PPAF is a 501(c)(4) organization, and donations are not tax-deductible as a charitable contribution or business expense.
We will be accepting cash at the door or online donations via GoFundMe.
Why a night of works by women, about women, for women?
Emily Miller and Coleen Renee Lis, cofounders of The Red Mic Repertory Company reached out to US after the devastating leak of the potential overturning of Roe V. Wade. We both decided that we needed to voice our opinions in the best way we knew how: through our art. While some believe that art is a fanciful passing, we understand the impact a performance, a song, a portrait, a dance…can have on someone. Thus Destigmatized was born.
Reaching out to company members, Red Mic and US gathered a group of talented women, to write and perform in a night centered around their experiences and their voices.
We hope you come and enjoy, learn, and share in the stories we present.
