Description:
LEAD Productions, the creative arm of NYS3 – The Meisner Acting Conservatory for the Southeast in Asheville, North Carolina, is extremely proud to present Steven Diet’z play “Fiction” for a limited engagement at Forsythia Hall on February 7, 11, and 12th. Following the recent, successful one-night stand of Bill Bowers’ award-winning off-Broadway show “It Goes Without Saying” at Asheville Community Theatre, “Fiction” marks LEAD’s first original foray as a production company. The premise of this intellectually charged and sophisticated play is as follows: Linda and Michael Waterman are both successful writers, happily married to one another for twenty years. Michael is a successful author whose books have been made into blockbuster films. Linda is a professor of writing whose first book, At The Cape, earned her nationwide critical acclaim. Together, they form a feisty partnership that thrives on intellectual banter and subtle competition. All works well in the world of the Watermans until Linda is unexpectedly diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor. The doctors give her only three weeks to live. Faced with this news, Linda offers Michael her diaries as a dying gift, asking him to read them after she is dead. In return, she asks Michael if she may read his. Although her dying wish makes Michael uncomfortable, he cannot deny her. Suddenly the boundaries between past and present, fact and fiction, trust and betrayal begin to break down. No life, as it turns out, is an open book. “Fiction” is being showcased at Forsythia Hall, an intimate, elegant venue near downtown Asheville. Directed by Richard Handy, the cast features local actors Deena Wade, Eamon Martin, and Val Rose, with musical design and live performance by Meg Mulhearn and Ross Gentry.

Ages 17 and up. Anyone age 16 and under must be accompanied by an adult.

The Vagina Monologues is a play written by Eve Ensler, and is based on interviews with over 200 women. This year marks the 17th anniversary of the play being performed across the world. The purpose of the Monologues is to raise funds and awareness for anti-violence groups in our local communities in an effort to end domestic and sexual violence against women. 100% percent of the proceeds from this production will go directly to Helpmate of Asheville (www.helpmateonline.org), and all of our cast are volunteers.

This is not just a show for women; men are especially encouraged to attend. These are issues that affect your mothers, sisters, daughters, wives, and friends. And you know what? Although there are aspects of the show that are heart-wrenching, the majority of it is absolutely hilarious!

This event is a fundraising effort spearheaded by Allison Taylor of WNC Weddings & Events (www.wncweddings.net) and Skillful Solutions, LLC (www.skillfulsolutions.net), who is managing the casting, directing, and producing, as well as contributing on-stage. She will be joined by a phenomenal cast of local women, who will make you laugh hysterically, cringe in empathy, and emerge with passion and hope.

Prices are $25 for General Admission (in advance) or $35 (at the door), and $15 for students (in advance) or $20 (at the door). The Monologues definitely contain mature material, and it is recommended for ages 17 and up. Anyone age 16 and under must be accompanied by an adult.

The Vagina Monologues is part of the V-Day campaign where volunteers produce a benefit performance in the community to raise awareness and funds for anti-violence groups within our own communities.  V-Day is a global activist movement to stop violence against women and girls. Use your voice by joining the ONE BILLION RISING movement. Make a promise that you will rise up with women and men worldwide to say, “Enough! The violence ends now.” To learn more, please visit www.vday.org.

This scalding comedy took Broadway and London by storm. Here is Mamet at his very best, writing about small- time, cutthroat real estate salesmen trying to grind out a living by pushing plots of land on reluctant buyers in a never-ending scramble for their share of the American dream. Revived on Broadway in 2005 and 2012, this masterpiece of American drama also became a celebrated film. With the express permission of David Mamet, this production features an all female cast. "At a time when the debate regarding gender equality and sexism has once again reached the boiling point; and as we wade deeper into the election season and the looming possibility of another historic political first, the all female casting of a traditionally male cast play seemed all the more intriguing", shares Stephanie Hickling Beckman, the Company's Managing Artistic Director.   A Post Show Discussion immediately follows Friday and Saturday night performances.  *Early Bird Special: Purchase your ticket(s) by March 5th and pay no fees!!
