[SM] Up: One Man’s Journey To Feminism @ The Hen & Chickens

Next month, I’ll be stage managing for Peter Pruyn’s play followed by audience reflections: Up: One Man’s Journey To Feminism.

What does it take for a man to become a feminist—and why does it matter?  In seven diverse and poignant vignettes from his own life, Peter Pruyn (“prine”), an American trauma therapist who works with female survivors, takes us on his journey, including the experiences of attending an all-boys primary school, being the only man in a Women’s Studies class, flying as a pilot in Alaska, interviewing at the trauma unit of a psych hospital, and working in a methadone clinic—culminating in a personal reflection on male privilege as a fundamental barrier to social change.  Along the way, Peter accompanies himself with improvised piano.  Each performance is followed by a period of reflections from the audience.

Up will be performed at The Hen and Chickens Theatre on various dates between March 31st and April 9th at 3pm. Please see the theatre website for exact dates. Tickets are available now.
