"BY MY ACCOUNT," is the genuinely-truer-than-you-think story of the most influential, best selling, globe-trotting, pirate of the Golden Age of Sail you've never heard of... and high time he set the record straight! Come hear some astonishing tales from the man himself: William Dampier. BY MY ACCOUNT is intended for adult audiences.
Chicago’s Artemisia Theatre returns to in-person performances in 2022, providing platforms for fiercely feminist viewpoints with new performances focused on women’s empowerment. A staged reading of THE FLOWER and THE FURY, by Alexa Juanita Jordan, performs at Filament Theatre July 14, 15, & 16 at 7:30 pm and July 17 at 3:00 pm. ADMISSION is FREE and every performance will be followed by a dedicated talkback to inspire compassion and social justice for women in our community. The Flower and The Fury follows three pregnant women as they contemplate abortion. Alexa is thrilled to make her debut with Artemisia. She will be in Chicago, leading the audience talkbacks on Friday, July 14 and Sunday, July 17.
