Meetup #48: Star Finch’s Bondage

Screen Shot 2018-03-09 at 5.48.13 PM

For our 48th Meetup, we return to AlterTheater for the third time to see a restaging of their hit 2017 production of Star Finch’s AfroSurreal play Bondage.  This is a tale of an enslaved girl who dares to follow her own instincts on an island plantation. Directed by Elizabeth Carter, the ‘uniformly excellent’ cast includes Dezi Soley, Emilie Talbot, Cathleen Riddley, and Emily Serdahl. Women on the design/production team include Natalie Barshow, Margaret Belton, Jen Brault and Jeanette Harrison. If you joined us for The River Bride in 2014 or for Landless in 2015, you know that AlterTheater is a company that champions the voices and perspectives of women while examining racial and gender hierarchies. Star Finch is a Bay Area playwright and Princess Grace award finalist.  You can learn more about her work here and here.
