The Men in Me

When: Sat., Nov. 10, 2 & 8 p.m. 2012

If you've caught one of Anita Shontel Woodley's one-person shows, you already know her uncanny ability to dial up a wide range of characters. But where Mama Juggs featured three generations of women facing breast cancer, her new work focuses on what she terms the "quietly kept narratives of trial and triumph" from the men in her family. The Men in Me: Our Fathers, Our Brothers, Our Sons, which premiered in California in August, examines the responses of men young and old, straight and gay, to circumstances she's described as desperate. Then it looks at how their choices and outcomes have influenced Woodley's life. We expect hard truths and sharp characters in a work that purports to be "weaving more compassion and power into their stories." Shows are at 2 and 8 p.m.; tickets run $20–$50. —Byron Woods

Price: $20-50
