The Seeing Place Theater presents The Whistleblower Series, three plays in rep: The People VS. Antigone, I Am My Own Wife, and My Name is Rachel Corrie from April 21 - May 13, 2018 at the Paradise Factory, 64 E. 4th Street, NYC. Tickets to each show are $20 general admission ($30 Premium Seating, $10 5@50%) and are available at http://www.TheSeeingPlace.com, including discounted ticket packages to all three plays for $45.
The Seeing Theater's eighth Season has focused on bringing together stories that challenge the ways in which we relate to our fellow man. The season concludes with a triple-header: THE PEOPLE VS ANTIGONE, a world premiere adaptation by Brandon Walker, running in rep with two searing one-person shows: I AM MY OWN WIFE, the Tony Award winning play by Doug Wright and MY NAME IS RACHEL CORRIE by Katharine Viner and Alan Rickman from the writings of Rachel Corrie.
Each play in the Whistleblower Series explores the female protagonist as anti-hero. Each has mysteries around their actions with the public vilifying them and diluting their intended message. Additionally, all three plays explore international themes: Antigone is set in Greece, I Am My Own Wife is set in Germany but also has Americans, Russians and even the Japanese represented. And My Name Is Rachel Corrie has an American girl going to Israel/Palestine.
