AT A GLANCE What: Rasheeda Speaking by Joel Drake Johnson, directed by Scott Keel When: September 1­-17, 2016, Thursday through Saturday evenings at 7:30pm. Where: The Be Be Theatre, 20 Commerce Street, Asheville NC 28801 Tickets: $18.00 in advance and $21.00 for General Admission at the Door. Early Bird Special: Purchase Tickets online by 9/4 ​and pay no fees. Ticket sales: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/dspac-presents-rasheeda-speaking-by-joel-drake-johnson-tickets-19744763118 Upon returning from a few sick days, Jaclyn notices some disturbing changes in the doctor’s office where she works. Meetings are happening without her. The doctor is acting even more awkward than usual. And Ileen, her co-­receptionist, is now her boss. She’s not stupid, though. Instead of letting them force her out, she flips the script — with some good, old-­fashioned psychological warfare. Rasheeda Speaking is a darkly funny, satirical depiction of workplace dynamics in “post­racial” America. Or is it a tightrope­-walking thriller? (It depends on who you root for.) The show debuted in Chicago in 2015, and went on to run in New York with a cast that included Tonya Pinkins and Dianne Wiest. "I chose this play last year as the Black Lives Matter campaign began to pick up steam, particularly around the death of Sandra Bland,” says managing artistic director Steph Hickling­ Beckman. Rasheeda Speaking will be the third show in the company’s sixth season. “It could not have been more relevant then, or now. Given the fact that both the playwright, Joel Drake Johnson, and the director, Scott Keel, are white males, I look forward to our Post Show Discussions on Friday and Saturday nights. It will be interesting to consider what these particular perspectives have to contribute to the current national discussion on race in America." With its provocative central relationship, thinly veiled racism, and crackling interpersonal tension, it’s almost as if Rasheeda Speaking was written exclusively for Different Strokes. Office power plays. Catty receptionists. Subtle (but ­not ­so ­subtle) racial tension. And the cool condescension that only an out­-of-­touch boss can dish out. Isn’t work fun? Rasheeda Speaking features: Steph Hickling Beckman, CJ Breland, Kristi DeVille, and Eamon Martin.

Greetings to All, I am very happy to announce our next community dance event. It is the: New Moon - Plant Spirit Medicine - Community Ecstatic Dance This is a September Harvest Moon New Moon - Community Dance. This event will also be a collaboration with my good friend Bloom Post who is an Asheville Local Medicine Woman / Author / Teacher / Plant Shaman. Schedule for the evening- Doors Open at 6:30pm Circle Up at 7:00pm Sharp! Music & Dance 8:15 - 9:30ish Community Chill time for 20 min or so.... Break down and clean up. Down the road. We will close the doors promptly @ 7pm and Bloom will begin the Plant Spirit Ceremony to enhance the dance experience. In sacred circle, we will embark on a shamanic journey as Bloom sings icaros, sacred plant medicine songs, to invite and welcome the plant spirit medicine teachers and guides to be with us. Working with these energies empowers the flow of healing energy through all present. Each person will be invited to connect with their Spirit Guides and plant teachers to receive guidance and gifts. Those who would like to work with the medicine of organic flower essences will be able to work with Floricita Medicina Spirit Essences which are made locally by Bloom. This Plant Spirit Ceremony gracefully flows the group into dance as the AED Ensemble plays a Live Musician Ecstatic Dance for 75min to 90min. We will then close the evening and have some Community Chill Time on the dance floor. If you have never been to the Ouroboros Movement Studio, it is across the street from the big new Ingles out on New Leicester Hwy. That's exactly 3.2 miles from Golds Gym on Patton or 6 mins. If you live in West Asheville, this studio is closer to Golds Gym than the Asheville Yoga Center is. It has a new bamboo dance floor that is very sweet and will be immaculate and clean for your dancing pleasure. We look forward to sharing this mystical and musical space with you all very soon as we celebrate the coming New Moon. With respect, Trey

Rasheeda Speaking by Joel Drake Johnson directed by Scott Keel September 1-17, 2016 RASHEEDA SPEAKING [is] an exquisitely tense and often cringingly funny portrait of racial paranoia…Chilling. An incendiary play by Joel Drake Johnson.” —The New York Times. “…the racially charged atmosphere thickens fast in RASHEEDA SPEAKING, an acidic depiction of race, power and friendship. Blending darkly awkward workplace comedy with intense racial tension, Johnson’s office-politics thriller is not afraid to push buttons hard.” —Time Out (New York). A wild ride…a wallop of a play…a thrilling must-see play.” —New York Magazine. “‘The doctor will see you now’ takes on a whole new meaning in [this] comedy-drama that’s jagged, jolting and just plain terrific.” —New York Daily News. *Early Bird Special: Purchase your ticket(s) by March 5th and pay no fees!!

Description:
AT A GLANCE What: Rasheeda Speaking by Joel Drake Johnson, directed by Scott Keel When: September 1­-17, 2016, Thursday through Saturday evenings at 7:30pm. Where: The Be Be Theatre, 20 Commerce Street, Asheville NC 28801 Tickets: $18.00 in advance and $21.00 for General Admission at the Door. Early Bird Special: Purchase Tickets online by 9/4 ​and pay no fees. Ticket sales: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/dspac-presents-rasheeda-speaking-by-joel-drake-johnson-tickets-19744763118 Upon returning from a few sick days, Jaclyn notices some disturbing changes in the doctor’s office where she works. Meetings are happening without her. The doctor is acting even more awkward than usual. And Ileen, her co-­receptionist, is now her boss. She’s not stupid, though. Instead of letting them force her out, she flips the script — with some good, old-­fashioned psychological warfare. Rasheeda Speaking is a darkly funny, satirical depiction of workplace dynamics in “post­racial” America. Or is it a tightrope­-walking thriller? (It depends on who you root for.) The show debuted in Chicago in 2015, and went on to run in New York with a cast that included Tonya Pinkins and Dianne Wiest. "I chose this play last year as the Black Lives Matter campaign began to pick up steam, particularly around the death of Sandra Bland,” says managing artistic director Steph Hickling­ Beckman. Rasheeda Speaking will be the third show in the company’s sixth season. “It could not have been more relevant then, or now. Given the fact that both the playwright, Joel Drake Johnson, and the director, Scott Keel, are white males, I look forward to our Post Show Discussions on Friday and Saturday nights. It will be interesting to consider what these particular perspectives have to contribute to the current national discussion on race in America." With its provocative central relationship, thinly veiled racism, and crackling interpersonal tension, it’s almost as if Rasheeda Speaking was written exclusively for Different Strokes. Office power plays. Catty receptionists. Subtle (but ­not ­so ­subtle) racial tension. And the cool condescension that only an out­-of-­touch boss can dish out. Isn’t work fun? Rasheeda Speaking features: Steph Hickling Beckman, CJ Breland, Kristi DeVille, and Eamon Martin.

Description:
When a hot-shot Airforce F16 fighter pilot becomes unexpectedly pregnant, she is removed from her super-sonic life in the sky and placed in a trailer in the Nevada desert to fight the “war on terror” piloting a drone. A powerful story of a solider pulled out of the battlefield and thrust into domestic life, from the blue abyss to a small grey screen, and into a reality she never imagined. Presented in partnership with Immediate Theatre Project.
