Emma When You Need Her

Apr. 13 - Apr. 15, 2015

In a world where a handful of rich men control the government, where women fight to control their bodies, where immigrants escaping war and poverty are met with fear and mistrust, where handlebar mustaches rule the streets and massage therapists are leading the march for justice . . . well, it's either Austin, 2014 or New York, 1914, but whenever we are we need to find the crowd-charging, hard-writing, fast-dancing, freedom-fighting, polyamorous, Lithuanian-Jewish anarchofeminist firebrand inside us all! It's time to answer the question: where oh where is . . . 


A Devised Theatrical Celebration of the Life, Loves and Struggles of the One and Only Emma Goldman

Come see how taking down capitalism, patriarchy and the governments that love them can be so much fun.

The Cohen New Works Festival  is a week-long showcase of new work created by UT students held every other Spring in various locations in and around the Winship Drama Building and the University of Texas campus. It is not just an event, but a celebration of a continuously ongoing process–the creation of new work.
