Staged Reading of Lived Through This


  • Piven Theatre 927 Noyes Street Evanston, IL United States (map)

Invited Staged Reading Dates: January 14th & 15th at 7:30pm at Piven Theatre in Evanston, IL.

Part personal history of activist and writer Anne K. Ream’s experience rebuilding her life in the wake of sexual violence, part memoir of a multi-country journey spent listening to survivors, Lived Through This has been adapted for the stage by Anne K. Ream, Jeff Award-winning playwright Marilyn Campbell-Lowe; and award-winning new talent Caity-Shea Violette. Directed by 16th Street Theater’s Ann Filmer, with performances by an ensemble of actors that includes Rusty Schwimmer and J. Nicole Brooks, the theatrical adaptation of Lived Through This also features live musical performances inspired by the rock ’n roll playlist that helped the book’s author heal. This is a play about the lives we live after saying “#MeToo,” and the gorgeous, funny, outspoken, all-too human women and men who are living them.
