BROADWAY WORLD ANNOUNCEMENT HERE

“In Carter’s new play BETTER, 20-year-old Emily’s life is turned upside down when her mother commits a shockingly violent act. She leaves school, takes a job at a fondue restaurant, consults a medium, and, like the good student she’s always been, searches for answers. How will she be able to endure her pain? What might she be capable of? Does she deserve happiness? And will things ever get better?”

"Old Names for Wildflowers is an expansive tale, set in a mysterious, forgotten corner of American history. Called by readers 'a feminist response to The Crucible,' and 'easily one of the most dynamic, original, and compelling plays of the last three years,' Wildflowers is part historical drama and part new mythology. The play follows a family of women struggling to survive the years after the Civil War on the edge of a wood haunted by the Devil’s whistle."

ONFW is produced by The Renovationists, Parity Productions and The Tank! Making theater takes time, dedication and money so please consider donating to the production by clicking either the link below.

Supporting artists is a great way to make a tax-deductible donation and be an activist at the same time. DO IT FOR THIS FEMINIST PLAY!
