THE KINDNESS OF STRANGERS by Jessica Cavanagh - FIRST LOOK READING
After an incredibly successful workshop run at Theatre Too in 2018, Jessica Cavanagh's semi-autobiographical work, SELF-INJURIOUS BEHAVIOR, is headed to New York for a 12-performance AEA Showcase to coincide with National Autism Awareness month this April.  The original Dallas cast and much of the Dallas-based creative team are all making the trip in an effort to not only bring this new play and the unique voice of its playwright to the New York market, but also, to showcase some of DFW's spectacular talent!

That being the case, 100% of the tickets sales for this first-look reading of Jessica Cavanagh's latest work, THE KINDNESS OF STRANGERS, will go towards meeting the needs of the Dallas cast/crew of SELF-INJURIOUS BEHAVIOR while they're in New York, such as housing, metro passes, and childcare for our SIBling cast/crew members with wee ones!

With these needs taken care of, the NY production will be able to donate 100% of the NY showcase's ticket sales to selected autism charities - another big part of our plans for the show!

So, YOUR kindness in purchasing a ticket and attending this THE KINDNESS OF STRANGERS reading will help bring a Dallas work and its artists to NY, which will in turn go towards benefitting autism charities, AND, you'll get a first look at a locally-acclaimed playwright's newest undertaking (FEATURING A PHENOMENAL CAST, GRACIOUSLY DONATING THEIR TIME AND TALENTS TO THE CAUSE!). Not a bad way to spend a Sunday, right? Come on out and be a part of this special evening!

SYNOPSIS
In the bustling and bawdy women's dressing room of a regional theatre on the eve of the 2016 presidential election, Nora, an actor playing Blanche in A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE, is facing a tough decision: should she risk jeopardizing the greatest career opportunity of her life by telling the truth about the terrible thing that just happened to her on stage, or should she push through and keep her head down, eyes on the prize, as she's always done? Sleeping demons raise their ugly heads and generations collide as Nora seeks the advice of both actual mentors and imaginary ones. When old-guard feminism faces off with the new, it seems everyone has an opinion... and everyone has something to lose.

In the climate of a heated election with a winning candidate who openly disregards the value of a woman's experience, how does one woman find the will to fight the power? How do any of us?
