Advance Theatre Festival - Sandra Monday, January 30, 2023 at 8:00 PM PST

Studio Theatre Reserved
× Sandra Playwright: Laura Di Cicco

Inspired by a true story, Sandra is a contemporary, fantasy drama about a courageous woman, who seeks closure to the violence in her life, and to the relationship with her mother. She finds guidance through the spirit of a childhood acquaintance, who leads the woman to a place of peace. At her elementary school, Monica encounters Sandra, who discloses a painful secret to Monica. While the two girls barely spoke in elementary school, Sandra‘s experience created a deep impact on Monica for the rest of her life. Later in life, Monica loses her own mother, and struggles to reconcile her life and the complicated relationship the two of them shared. Through a series of flashbacks, we discover Monica‘s own painful past with violence and rape. Guided by Sandra, Monica is able to move forward with her own life.

Studio Theatre Reserved
× Sitting on the Edge Playwright: Celeste Insell After a long bout of “writer‘s block” Clarisse is finally writing again, but she now finds herself writing a play that is semi-autobiographical. She is finding the play difficult to write because she is forced to revisit some very painful memories; and her train of thought is constantly being interrupted by her alter ego Mavis who prefers that she write a comedy. Content Warning: This play uses some strong and offensive language; and deals with child abuse and gender-based violence.

ReZonance Playwright: Yvonne Wallace | Ucwalmicw

Mixy is invited to a meeting to plan an Indigenous retreat based on land pedagogy. She was invited because of her previous language revitalization work. The problem wasn’t that she lacked skill or ability, the problem was her unwillingness to be treated anything less than equal. A mixed-race tragicomedy.

Dil Ka Playwright - Lee Nisar

Dil Ka (Urdu for ’of the Heart’) follows potential bride-to-be, Zahra, a 26-year old Pakistani woman who is attempting to make biryani to bring to a potential suitor’s house. While she fusses and delves into the dish, desperate to make a good impression and please her loving-but-traditional family, Zahra begins treating the kitchen (when her parents or siblings aren’t sneaking in and stealing bites of food) as a sort of confessional, coming to terms with what – and who – she really wants, and how it drastically differs from the desires she has been spoon-fed since birth.
