ART's poster for THE WOMAN'S PART
Next up at Theatre 810, Acadiana Repertory Theatre brings us THE WOMAN'S PART, another original work from local favorite, Cody Daigle-Orians!
The Woman's Part celebrates women in theatre, both at the dawn of their professional entrance to the business and in today's world. Act One takes place in 1669 London, and follows Aphra Behn, the first professional female playwright, as she brings her first play "The Forc'd Marriage" to the stage. The second act takes place in 2015 Baton Rouge, Louisiana, where an all-female theatre company plans to mount "The Forc'd Marriage" in an attempt to save their struggling company. Camaraderie, creativity and compromise face both sets of women artists in pursuit of a life in the theatre.
THE WOMAN'S PART is directed by Steven R. Landry and assisted by Gabe Ortego. The cast is made up of many familiar faces: Etienna Wright, Jordan Umphries, Deborah D. Ardoin, Cindy Hebert, Jody L. Powell, Chloe Abbott, Erica Jure, Bonnie Kyzar, John Snyder, and Allen Higginbotham.
Shows are June 19, 20,& 25, 26, 27 at 7:30pm with a matinee on Sunday, June 21 at 2:00pm. Tickets can be purchased online from Eventbrite at http://www.eventbrite.com/e/art-presents-the-womans-part-by-cody-daigle-orians-tickets-16769964415, reserved by phone at (337)484-0172, or reserved by email at email@example.com.
