Back in July, as I was just coming off of our first coverage of Toronto’s Fringe festival, I made friends with a wonderfully talented actor and director, Adrianna Prosser, who advised me of a project she was involved in and was kind enough to arrange a ticket for me.
That was for the strong, and wonderfully crafted production of Tandum Entertainment’s State of Women, written by Andy Lyberopoulos and directed by Tatum Lee. The epic two act play was presented as a showcase event, and told the story of four women whose lives become intertwined during World War II, when they answer the call and go to work in the factories to build munitions and planes.
At the center of the group is Eve Landing (Alyssa Owsiany) and her rise as a symbol of the factory girls. You can read my original review here.
And now, I’m delighted to tell you that as of November 11, State of Women is back on stage!! This time being presented at the Al Green theatre, and runs from November 11 to the 15th. Most days even have two presentations, so there will be plenty of opportunity to get out to see it, and it’s something I can’t recommend enough.
As mentioned in my previous post, I’ve always found that era interesting, and learning about those corners of history I may not know about. And sadly, the factory experience of women during World War II was one of them, this was one of the reasons Bomb Girls was so dear to my heart.
If you’re interested in a wonderful time at the theatre with a great story based on experiences of actual factory girls known as Rosie the Riveters, a very talented cast, and beautifully mounted production, then you owe it to yourself to check out this production while it’s on.
I’m looking forward to seeing it again, I’ll be there opening night, and can’t wait to be welcomed back into Eve’s world, to see her friends again, and share in their lives as they unfold before my eyes.
Get out there and see this one!!!
