The Rights of Men
Playwright: Edith Freni
In three intertwining stories, two childhood friends, two women trapped in a war torn world, and a man-made monster all strive to cope with relationships, broken promises, identity, and the complicated questions of what it means to be human in an ethically slippery world.
Actor’s Express is a theatre that challenges and reflects contemporary human experiences in an inclusive environment. We seek to jumpstart individual transformations through the shared adventure of our live performances, which range from daringly provocative to audaciously hilarious. Actor’s Express constantly develops new talent, pushes boundaries and encourages people to question their place in the world. Our work creates emotional connections between audience and artist, catalyzing discussion on the complex issues of the contemporary human experience. We stay one step ahead of the conversation - our audiences expect to be challenged when they attend our programming. We firmly believe the relevance and vitality of the American theatre depends upon a continual infusion of new work and the nurturing of new playwrights. Playwrights are the chroniclers, critics and prophets of our times. They offer stories about the way we live, love, and sacrifice, and provide new insights into our shared humanity. Actor’s Express is committed to championing the emerging voices of the American stage.Our primary goals are four-fold: to nurture the next generation of playwrights through workshops, readings, and full productions of new plays; to develop and nurture Atlanta’s artistic community through rigorous theatre training; to catalyze the dialogue essential to the vitality of our neighborhood and our city; and to enhance Atlanta’s reputation nationally as a thriving center for live performance.
We are the Southern Appalachian Cider Cooperative! We’re a worker owned co-op of farmers, herbalists, scientists, foragers, artists, and brewers - We make dank living vinegars brewed from scratch locally with Georgia Grown Apples. We created the Cherokee Moon Mixology, CiderHouse Sours, and Cider Pearl brand Apple Cider Vinegars. We make wild fermented, wildflower wines and ciders, and lovingly culture them further with GA Apple Cider vinegar Mothers. Our company’s mission is rooted in providing nutrient dense, medicinal whole foods - brewed slowly to provide optimal flavor and nutrition, and made lovingly with only the freshest locally grown ingredients. We are a coven of herbalists. We utilize the gift and bounty of wild food medicine, and wildcraft sustainably throughout all four seasons. We believe a diverse biome is a happy biome. We believe in the power of plants.
