Monday, December 5, 2016: Wanna Have Fun? AJ Baker and ENTANGLEMENT

Women's Magazine this Monday, December 5 is just going to be super-fun. No heavy stuff. 

Sharon Sobotta talks with playwright AJ Baker about ENTANGLEMENT, a play about a play about the quantum mechanics of love. It’s been twenty years since actors Emma and Luke were a couple, but they’re still connected by a net of loose ends and secrets. When Emma writes a thinly veiled roman-a-clef of a play and asks Luke to direct her in it, the struggle over who controls the story of their break-up –and its far-ranging results — becomes just as important as the script itself.  Aided and abetted by Luke’s daughter and Emma’s husband, the former lovers turn Emma’s play into a backdrop for grappling with how their long-ago choices entangle them in each other’s lives forever.

Only 12-18% of new plays produced by the American mainstream theatre establishment in any year are written by women — an incredible statistic made even more so by the fact that this low percentage is roughly the same today as it was a century ago.  3Girls Theatre Company is proud to be one of  the very few theater companies in the nation that produce only plays by women playwrights.
