“A Woman Called Truth” Closing Report

This past weekend we closed A Woman Called Truth. If we can believe what people were telling us – the show was a success.  15 seats were added to accommodate the large audiences we received.  Even then, others had to be turned away.

I’m proud to say that, between ticket sales and donations, we were able to pay our ensemble the most we’ve ever paid!  To top it off, we made $165 for the Battered Women’s Shelter.

People are now asking if we can tour.  Our answer is:  YES!

Here’s what we’ve sent out regarding touring the show:

If you missed the show audiences are calling “powerful” and an “excellent work of art” – you’re not too late.  Heads Up Productions’ version of A Woman Called Truth – written by Sandra Fenichel Asher – is available for performance at your venue.  (The simple staging allows this production to be performed anywhere!)  Our sell out production at First Grace United Church of Christ is being scheduled for upcoming tour dates.  Make sure to get us on your calendar!

A Woman Called Truth chronicles the life of Sojourner Truth from the day she is ripped away from her family through her struggle for freedom to her emergence as a popular and respected figure fighting for abolition and women’s rights.

Educational, entertaining and a slice of northeast Ohio history this show is perfect for schools, churches and family events. A Woman Called Truth makes a wonderful addition to any African-American History Month program.  The show is also a great fundraising opportunity for your organization.

Any interested parties should contact Artistic Director Benjamin Rexroad by calling 330.990.5138 or emailing benjamin@headsupproductions.net and visit the show page to see photos from our production.
