Want to know what’s really on a woman’s mind? Lynn Redgrave, Ally Sheedy, and Anna Deveare Smith are just some of the big names who’ll let you in on a few secrets at the 12th annual Women Center Stage festival, a provocative multidisciplinary series of performances and conversations focused on women’s rights and social change. Tonight, don’t miss Seven, a new collaborative work based on the true stories of seven women, each from a different country, created by seven award-winning playwrights, including Smith and Catherine Filloux. Other highlights include stand-up by alt-comedy diva Julie Goldman (April 16-18, 26); a conversation and dramatic reading with death-row exoneree Sonia “Sunny” Jacobs, joined by actresses Redgrave and Sheedy, who played her in the Culture Project’s hit show The Exonerated (April 21); and a performance of Warriors Don’t Cry, about the Little Rock Nine, by 2006 Pulitzer finalist Eisa Davis (April 25).
