Emma When You Need Her
A Devised Theatrical Celebration of the Life, Loves and Struggles of the One and Only Emma Goldman

May.01-16, 2015  | Directed by Rudy Ramirez


In a world where a handful of rich men control the government, where women fight to control their bodies, where immigrants escaping war and poverty are met with fear and mistrust, where handlebar mustaches rule the streets and massage therapists are leading the march for justice . . . well, it's either Austin 2014 or New York 1914, but whenever we are, we need to find the crowd-charging, hard-writing, fast-dancing, freedom-fighting, polyamorous, Lithuanian-Jewish anarcho-feminist firebrand inside us all! It's time to answer the question: where oh where is . . .

Fresh from development as a devised new work as part of The Cohen New Works Festival at the University of Texas at Austin.

Created by the Ensemble. Directed by Rudy Ramirez. Featuring Katie Baskerville, Susan Bennett, Samuel Blake, Shannon Grounds, Kevin Hippler, Nickclette Izuegbu, Keith Machekanyanga, Jules Minkoff, Jesus Valles, and Tiffany Watson.

Dramaturgy and Assistant Direction by Madilynn Garcia, Media Design by Kate Ducey, Lighting Design by Patrick Anthony, Costume Design by E.L. Hohn, Stage Management by Tamara L. Farley.

See how taking down capitalism, patriarchy and the governments that love them can be so much fun.
