Theater, poetry and visual art collide in this contemporary retelling of the Medusa myth. As Medusa frankly confronts her infamy, voices of survivors embolden her to unmask the lies surrounding her own story. Based on true accounts of survivors of sexual assault and complimented by the visual art of Kate Goltseva, this collaboration asks us to face the stories that need to be heard.
KISS ME OR CUT OFF MY HEAD is adapted by Leadership Council member Brooke M. Haney from the poetry of Sheryl St. Germain. The piece aims to raise money and build awareness for Margaret’s Safe Place, a project of Shining Hope. To that end, 35% of the proceeds from every ticket will go to Margaret's Safe Place as well as all proceeds from concessions.
