This August, The Bird & Baby Theatre Company of Greer is producing The Few Lilies Project, a benefit for Safe Harbor. The Few Lilies Project exists to promote awareness of the issue of domestic violence and raise money for Safe Harbor. Through the theatre production and the accompanying art exhibit, the audience will be confronted with the issue in a unique way, and will be provided with the opportunity to contribute additional funds, above the initial ticket price, directly to Safe Harbor.
The theatre production consists of Arlene Hutton’s I Dream Before I Take the Stand, and a series of monologues written by local playwright Anne Pecaro. Anne interviewed survivors of domestic violence, turning their stories into monologues.
For the art gallery, The Bird & Baby Theatre Co. has commissioned several local, visual artists to create works of art using G.M. Hopkins’ poem “Heaven-Haven” as inspiration, creating a thematically unified art show. These works of art will be on display in The Bird & Baby clubhouse throughout the entire run of The Few Lilies Project.
20% of all revenue generated by The Few Lilies Project will be given directly to Safe Harbor.
The show opens Aug 6, and has additional performances on the 7, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 17, 18, 19, 20, and 21. Show times are at 8:00, with matinee performances at 1:00 on the 7, 14, and 21. Tickets are $25, and can be purchased online. www.thebirdandbaby.com
