Award-winning Chicago stage veteran Roslyn Alexander fills the fascinating shoes of fearless activist Emma Goldman in this new solo drama that explores the passions behind the controversial figure's political agitation and the price she was willing to pay for it. A charismatic speaker and organizer, Goldman threatened the turn-of-the-century status quo with her liberal views on social issues and women's rights, but became infamous as an anarchist who advocated free love and who was jailed several times for demonstrating contraceptives, inciting to riot and opposing the draft. Dennis Zacek directs for the ShPIeL Theatre. Learn More

I really enjoyed this show. It was campy and over the top, though definitely not for everyone. The book was often weak, but the high quality of the acting more than made up for this. It has some of the quickest costume changes I've ever seen since Irma Vep. As another reviewer mentioned, it's wonderful escapist fun,
A new campy, cheeky, audacious musical comedy. The ladies of the Umatilla Second Christian Church Women’s Auxiliary League are getting together to produce their annual Mother’s Day Pageant. Six men play every character in this singing, acting, dancing, improv tour de force. As the ‘Church Girls’ prepare for their pageant, chaos and calamity bring out less than ‘saintly’ behavior. The result is Heaven-sent hilarity!
