“Juicy, visceral theater.” - The New York Times

The Wooster Group’s newest work THE TOWN HALL AFFAIR delves into the revolutionary fervor of feminist thinking and art “happenings” of 1970s New York. The piece is based on the Chris Hegedus and D.A. Pennebaker film Town Bloody Hall, a documentary of a 1971 panel that featured feminist thinkers and activists— including Germaine Greer, Jill Johnston, and Diana Trilling — with Norman Mailer serving as an immoderate moderator. Special focus is given to radical lesbian Jill Johnston, who attempted to subvert the event. THE TOWN HALL AFFAIR features performances by Enver Chakartash, Ari Fliakos, Greg Mehrten, Erin Mullin, Scott Shepherd, Maura Tierney, and Kate Valk, and is directed by Elizabeth LeCompte. 

These performances by The Wooster Group at REDCAT are funded in part by generous support from members of The REDCAT Host Committee:  Premier Sponsor: Gary Stewart; Kevin Brine and Jessica Smith, Fariba Ghaffari, Diane Levine, Dr. Bruce Piner and Andrea Piner, Alexander Westerman and David Gleason, and Good Works Foundation.
