TANIA IN THE GETAWAY VAN by Susan Bernfield / The Pool - Submitted by Susan Bernfield
December 8, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - December 16, 2017 @ 7:30 pm
The Pool is a pop-up theater company formed by playwrights Lynn Rosen, Peter Gil-Sheridan & Susan Bernfield to drive our own processes and produce our ready-to-go plays!
…including Susan Bernfield’s semi-autobiographical TANIA IN THE GETAWAY VAN, all about the women’s movement! It’s 1975 in the San Francisco Bay Area, and Laura’s mom is going back to school. Diane is discovering liberation, openness, possibility! But that doesn’t mean eleven-year-old Laura has to play along, no way. She’s in the hall closet, pretending to be Patty Hearst. Fast forward to 2012. Successful Laura looks like a model product of the women’s movement… or is she just the byproduct of Diane’s expectations?
Directed by Portia Krieger and featuring Annie McNamara, Caitlin Morris, Courtney G. Williams and Madeline Wise.
