Isaiah Women: “SHE IS HISTORY”  AMY SIMON’S ONE-WOMAN SHOW

Sunday, July 10 | 2:00 p.m.

Come to the sanctuary and enjoy an engaging show written and performed by actor, writer and cultural herstorian, Amy Simon (creator of Cheerios in my Underwear).  It will be presented by Rabbi Zoe Klein-Miles.

According to Simon, “She Is History” is a compilation of the stories of women who make and made history, told through the eyes of a modern mom - “We know more about Kim Kardashian than Abigail Adams. And that is just not right. I had spent a lot of time at my daughters’ school, noticing in the hallways and classrooms the pictures and posters and wallpaper borders – all mostly men. The same was true in their history books…”

“I workshopped the solo play and debuted it in 2009 at The Skirball Center and had a run here in town at The Lounge Theater and then took the show around the country to military bases, museums, historic sites and to a few schools – which was really the audience I wrote the play for.”
“I perform it every March – Women’s History Month, and every August to celebrate August 26th – Women’s Equality Day, the day we celebrate when women WON the right to vote with the passage of the Nineteenth Amendment.”
