Plays include Washington Monument by W.A Walters in which a DC cover up of an brutal assault, years earlier gets revisited when a young man is being groomed for office. Will power politics win, or will justice prevail? And, Can You Hear Me Now? by Indiana playwright, Nicole Amsler, in which grandma’s beeping phone is hiding a deeper secret than her hate for tech, while three generations of women relate to each other around their understanding, and comic misunderstanding of the #metoo movement. THE #metoo PLAYS:PERSIST opens NOVEMBER 30th, 2018 at 8pm and runs through December 8th at 2pm featuring such plays as TIP by New York playwright, Frank Tangredi which centers around Logan, a young journalist who’s found himself in a situation with a female boss who praises him for more than his writing and the distress of his assault is not the laughing matter his roommate seems to think it is. Two Girls by Allie Costa, rounds out the program, Directed by Off-Broadway veteran, Karen Carpenter taking us on a poetic journey wherein two girls face arbitrary danger and fear, and yet eventually courage and hope — resonant with so many voices today. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=335408 The Alternative Theater The Alternative Theater
