MARCH 2016  · UNIT 102 THEATRE

directed by Ali Joy Richardson
featuring: Julie Tepperman, Annemieke Wade, Christopher Allen & Alicia Richardson

"The imagination and depth of humanity on display in Still grabs you right from the beginning of the experience, in something between a headlock and a hug. An honest, compelling story, without a sentimental bone in its body."  - Mitchell Cushman, Outside the March

"Very pleasantly surprised by Still, as I went into the theatre knowing little except that the play was about a woman whose child is stillborn, and another woman with an unwanted pregnancy, so expected something quite heavy, but instead saw a show that was quite sweet and delightful, strongly directed with touching performances all around." - Derrick Chua, Theatre Producer

"If you're a person who breathes, you'd probably like this show. If you're a person who thinks, you need to see it...slick, smart, and unpretentious." - B. Hayward (Patron)

"Wow...an exquisitely funny and deeply moving play...an unmissable treasure." - J. Beck (patron)

Still is the story of a professor, her midwife, a dominatrix, and a baby who never got to be. Morgan's son was born dead, Dolores is pregnant with a child she doesn't want, and failed midwife Elena seeks either redemption or a career change. All three women confront their fears, desires, and each other, while Morgan's baby is running out of time to find her.

“I have read other plays on the subject of a stillborn child, but none that live in such an existential plane, none as elegant in formal structure, none with language both surreal and trashy, none as funny, and none
as moving.”  
- Marsha Norman ('night, Mother, Pulitzer Prize Winner, 2013 Adjudicator of Yale Drama Series)
