The production We Are Pussy Riot ( or Everything Is P.R. )written by Barbara Hammond and directed by Kate Hendricksonwill run June 7-July 6 at Red Tape Theatre's The Ready, 4546 N. Western Ave.
Pussy Riot is an anonymous collective of young Russian activists who protested the 2012 presidential elections by marching into the Church of Christ the Savior in the center of Moscow and offering up a punk prayer to the Mother of God"Virgin Mary, Chase Putin Away!" Their 48-second performance earned them a two-year prison sentence and jettisoned them to super-star status in the West.
We Are Pussy Riot ( or Everything Is P.R. ) weaves trial transcripts, letters, interviews, media coverage and statements from celebrities and public officials, to reimagine the story of Pussy Riot as told by a troupe of Yurodivy, who, in the Russian Orthodox tradition, strives with "imaginary insanity to reveal the insanity of the world."
Tickets are free, but RSVPs are required; visit www.eventbrite.com/e/we-are-pussy-riot-or-everything-is-pr-tickets-60816906003 .
