EVA THE CHASTE BY BARBARA HAMMOND

"Aedín Moloney gives a powerful performance as Eva...Barbara Hammond's monologue is similar in structure to James Joyce."

 ".....Barbara Hammond sows it with evocative turns of phrase...directed by John Keating with an eye toward Beckett...Moloney delivers with impressive clarity and nuance, to almost hypnotic effect...Moloney’s Eva is a memorable creation"

FALLEN ANGEL ARE DELIGHTED TO PRESENT A SERIES OF Aftershow PANEL DISCUSSIONS organized and curated by Barbara Hammond for Eva the Chaste audience

on JULY 12TH, 17TH & 19TH

WE ARE HONORED TO HAVE THE FOLLOWING PANELISTS BE A PART OF THIS PRODUCTION

 

Writing Women’s Lives    Tuesday July 12th, 2011

Colum McCann • Susan Jonas • Belinda McKeon • Honor Molloy

On July 12th, Colum McCann (National Book Award/IMPAC Award for Let the Great World Spin), Honor Molloy (playwright, Maiden Voyages; curator, “Future of Working Theater” Reading Series), Susan Jonas (NYU faculty; founder, 50/50 by 2020) and Belinda McKeon (curator, “Imagine Ireland”; novelist) will discuss the role of women in literature and drama.  From Shaw’s St. Joan to Albee’s Martha, from Medea to Madame Bovary, the conceptions we commonly hold of the Great Female Character and the Strong Female Role have often been shaped by men.  Does this still hold true today?  Who are the women writing women, and why does it matter that their voices are heard? What does it take, beyond questions of gender, to write a truly lasting and complex character?

 

Mothers and Daughters  Sunday July 17th, 2011 

Annabel Clark  • Toni Dorfman • Barbara Hammond •Yolanda Sanchez

On July 17th, Toni Dorfman (Director of Undergraduate Theatre Studies, Yale University; playwright; director), Annabel Clark (photojournalist; author, Journal: A Mother and Daughter's Recovery from Breast Cancer) and Yolanda Sanchez (founding member, National Latinas Caucus, C.A.C.H.E. and Casabe Houses in East Harlem) will participate in a panel titled “Mothers and Daughters”. Yolanda Sanchez joins this panel with a current, very real perspective on what can be and is currently being done to help guide at risk teenagers on the path to womanhood.  How is the relationship between mother and daughter portrayed in the theatre?  Whom and what can take on the role of mother in situations where a biological connection is missing? In the shadow of the father/son preoccupations of Shepard, O’Neill, and Miller, where can we find equally poignant and truthful portrayals of the intimacy, love and pain of being a mother or a daughter?    

 

Great Roles for Women  Tuesday July 19th, 2011 

Tanya Barfield • Estelle Lasher • Deb Margolin • Aedín Moloney • Charlotte Moore

On July 19th, Tanya Barfield (playwright, Blue Door, Defacing Patriotic Property), Estelle Lasher (founder, Principal Management, a bi-coastal talent and literary management agency) and Aedin Moloney (Artistic Director & Producer, Fallen Angel Theatre Company; actor) and Charlotte Moore (actor/director and Artistic Director of The Irish Repertory Company) will discuss “Great Roles for Women”.  Go behind the scenes of tour-de-force performances with writers, directors, actors and talent management.  What makes a role great, and why are they in shorter supply for women?  Expect anecdotes from the trenches.

 

THE DISCUSSIONS WILL TAKE PLACE DIRECTLY AFTER THE PERFORMANCE OF EVA THE CHASTE
