The McCoy Theatre presents: The Bag Lady Manifesta

Event date

In a world that treats Black life as if it’s disposable, The Bag Lady is an urgent reckoning and revelation. She is the accumulation of discarded lives and abandoned histories wreaking havoc on the amnesia, the forgetting, the erasure and the silencing. Remembering is the responsibility of the living.

Performed by Taja Lindley and directed by Tanisha Christie, The Bag Lady Manifesta features an immersive installation of memory followed by a participatory performance ritual where audiences are invited to (re)consider what to let go of, and what to remember – individually and collectively.

Dr. Voynich and Her Children

Event date

Our story takes us into the lives of a traveling herbalist and
her eager apprentice who are journeying through the heartland of
the U.S. Although this play takes place in the future, society
has regressed into a world where every decision is a risk.
Despite this, in the midst of this chaotic world, new love blooms
while old love rekindles, and a life-altering choice is made that
changes everything.
