ONE-WOMAN SHOW AT PITT-BRADFORD EXPLORES LIFE IN SOVIET UNION

LIFE IN SOVIET UNION

BRADFORD, Pa. -- A dark and funny play exploring the lives of six women living under the Soviet regime will be performed on Tuesday, Oct. 20, at the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford.

“Child of Hungry Times” will take the stage at 7:30 p.m. in the Studio Theatre in Blaisdell Hall as part of the university’s Spectrum Series. Admission is free. Some language and content may not be suitable for young children.

Based on the controversial writings of Soviet dramatist Ludmila Petrushevskaya, “Child of Hungry Times” is a critically acclaimed, one-woman show written and performed by Bridget Bailey.

“The play consists of multiple women’s voices, all struggling with a society that seems not to have their best interests in mind,” said Dr. Kevin Ewert, associate professor of theater.

After performing “Child of Hungry Times” at Duke University for her senior thesis project, Bailey received a grant and a Benenson Award in the Arts to produce the show in Seattle. She has since performed the production for audiences in Moscow and New York.

“I'm very excited for our students and campus community to see this work — which is both intimate and deep — created by a student that has then had a very rich theatrical life beyond its academic origins,” Ewert said.

According to Seattle’s La Rhussophobe Journal, “Bailey’s performance is one of those marvels of quick-change artistry, not just costumes, but posture, gait and accent, too.”

SHes pretty whats wrong with pointing that out... just because potter county has so many toothless bags send in a pretty girl and they get all defensive

How about admiring what she does instead of what tickles your ear?

If that's all you see when you look at a women, and that's all that was posted, you don't even deserve a "toothless bag"

What is truly unfortunate is that attitude is passed on to your children.

Potter County has some of the most steadfast women I have ever known.

Again what is wrong with beauty? The problem with alot of women around here is they are not only ugly on the outside but on the inside as well. Personality means alot to alot of guys. She can be what society says is pretty on the outside but be ugly inside to. Why is it wrong to comment on something such as this yet women can have their desperate housewives and sex in the city crap and all that stuff is ok? I look forward to seeing this play and hope that it gives me a better outlook on some women today.
