Special, an award-winning one act theatrical stage play on rape by WIF LA and Women in Film International member acclaimed writer, director and producer Ann P Meredith, has been selected for New York Theater Festival's 2017 Summerfest at The Hudson Guild Theatre (441 West 26th Street) in August 2017.
All six actors are NYWIFT members: Kia Graves, Margaret Lewis, Nan Gill, Richa Rudola, Tonya Canada and Mitzi Pratt.
Special is a labor of love and passion and is also a motion picture feature film project that speaks to so many who have been raped, are being raped, and will be raped. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has requested a copy of Ann P Meredith’s screenplay for Special for their permanent core collection.
Special performances are:
Thursday, August 3rd at 9 PM
Friday, August 4th at 6:15 PM
Sunday, August 6th at 8:30 PM
Tickets are $23 and may be purchased online.
The team is also looking to raise $2500 to pay cast, crew and production expenses. Please consider donating through their GoFundMe campaign by August 6th.
