A Theater Company's Bold Move: Women-Only Season
 

Why are there so few plays by women being produced? Why aren't there better roles for women? A national conversation about these subjects and more has been happening in the theater world, and actors, playwrights, and artistic directors in the San Francisco Bay Area have been a part of the discussion on gender parity. This year, the company at Berkeley's Shotgun Players decided to do something about the problem-their season, starting this week with Antigonick by Anne Carson and ending in January 2016 with Agatha Christie's The Mousetrap, consists of all women playwrights...

I said "Girls play basketball?" Ike said, "Yeah!...but you got wimpy wrists." Then he showed me how to crunch up the New York Times to develop my strength.

In " a kind shot ", Mateer dribbles a ball while telling the story of her life...beginning with how an African American boarder named Ike, taught a 6'1" sixth grade Mateer to play basketball. It's an uplifting, honest, no-holds-barred personal account that chronicles her years as a professional basketball player, aspiring architect and model.

Now Available: REGARDING SUSAN SONTAG


REGARDING SUSAN SONTAG is an intimate and nuanced investigation into the life of one of the most influential and provocative thinkers of the 20th century. Endlessly curious, passionate and gracefully outspoken throughout her career, Susan Sontag became one of the most important literary, political and feminist icons of her generation. This beautifully constructed documentary tracks Sontag's life through evocative experimental images, archival materials, accounts from friends, family, colleagues, and lovers, as well as her own words as read by Patricia Clarkson. 

From her early infatuation with books to her first experience in a gay bar; from her early marriage to her 15-year relationship with legendary photographer Annie Leibovitz, REGARDING SUSAN SONTAG is a fascinating look at a towering cultural critic and writer whose works on photography, war, illness, and terrorism continue to resonate today.
