As a special extra, following the show on Saturday, January 14, starting at 5:30 pm (after the matinee), there will be a "talk-back" discussion facilitated by Kelly Hayes-Raitt, along with a panel of experts. The purpose will be to further explore the play's provocative questions.
The panel includes Carolyn Cothran, Barbara Hildt and director LB Hamilton. Cothran earned an MA degree in Alternative Conflict Resolution from Southern Methodist University, where she focused on studying Restorative Justice. Hildt, after serving five terms in the Massachusetts legislature, spent 15 years creating violence prevention programs with youth.
Hamilton, who has personally wrestled with some of Death in the Maiden’s searing questions, holds an MFA and degrees in Behavioral Science/Psychology and Theatre Arts. She’s worked with non-profit organizations, theater companies and universities to develop and facilitate workshops and curricula that combine social/emotional learning with creative arts to deal with bullying, surviving abuse, conflict resolution, social justice and peace studies.
Hayes-Raitt has facilitated and participated in several audience discussions following plays that explore the impacts of war on Iraqis. She was the Los Angeles moderator for then-First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton’s national town hall meeting “What Every Woman Needs to Know About Social Security.”
This discussion is free and open to the public. If you wish to attend, but will not be in the audience for that show, please arrive at LLT no earlier than 5:15 pm, at which time the bar will re-open for your enjoyment.
