******************

Mud & Wine, a Theatre Collective is proud to present a new collaborative work. Created from the writings and physical explorations of twelve talented young women. The diverse cast gathered their own stories and experiences for inspiration as well as investigated the cultural history of a woman's place in society. Through song, dance and written word this show will explore what it means to be a young female in our modern world.

Though the coffee shop was busy with late afternoon bustle, Rhiannon Frasier unabashedly let tears well in her eyes as she talked about her work on Our Glass Figures, a piece of theater opening this weekend at Tricklock and moving to The Cell Theatre in its second week. It's heavy material that Mud&Wine Collective—the theater company producing the event—is grappling with in this original production. Weighty as it is, the content of the piece addresses a lived reality for many people, particularly women. That being said, if you are triggered by discussion of sexual violence, rape, assault and abuse—this might not be the piece of theater to settle into this weekend, it may not even be in your best interest to continue on with this article—but know that the topics are treated honestly and with great care by the 12 women involved with the production. As Frasier spoke, her conviction flashed. “No matter what happens in the performance, just to sit in a room with a lot of women … who are so willing to be completely honest … is empowering, to have women tell you into your eyeballs that this is a horrible time that they went through and they have since come out of it.”
