Greetings once again dear viewers as spring has finally sprung! This also means that SWAN Day Pittsburgh 2015 is right around the corner! Brought to the ‘burgh by our friends The No Name Players (Tressa Glover, the Producing Artistic Director and Don DiGiulio, the Artistic Director), the fun begins this Saturday, March 14th at 8PM at the Twentieth Century Club in Oakland.

It will feature WORLD PREMIERE works by local female MUSICIANS, CHOREOGRAPHERS, THEATRE ARTISTS, FILMMAKERS, VISUAL ARTISTS, LIVE PAINTERS and more.  No Name Players has asked participating SWAN Day Pittsburgh 2015 artists to submit works using this idea as inspiration: “Everyone has an untold story hidden behind closed doors. Try to understand that people are not always as they first seem.”

There is no other event in Pittsburgh that showcases world premiere works by local women artists from so many disciplines.  Please join us as we do our part to honor the power of women artists and their work.

Featured artists include: Kahmeela Adams, Brooke Annibale, Judith Avers, Jackie Baker, Laura Barletta, David Bielewicz, Bodiography Contemporary Ballet, Jennifer Buck, Camelia Road, Bridget Carey, Siovhan Christensen, Angela Citrola, Continuum Dance Theater, Ashley Cornwall, Tiara Dinkins, Kaylyn Farneth, Eve Goodman, Jessica Heberle, Mils James, Jen Krezezcowski, Everett Lowe, Aimee Manion, Jena Oberg, Jody O'Donnell, Gayle Pazerski, Bridgette Perdue, Tracey Ramun, Rachna Rajen, Reed Dance, Sherri Roberts, Danielle Rode, Elizabeth L.

"...a dark and gritty take on gender roles, fairy tales and family drama." - TimeOut Chicago

The task is stirring a pot...all day, every day.  The sisters don't share it as they once did. Paulette is fed up; Collette is clueless; and crippled Babette is volatile.  Juliette does her best to maintain order and civility...for now.  When Roxette brings her new girlfriend home and calls everyone together, old grievances flare setting into motion an impossible moral struggle.  Where else can fights go when you already use your fists?

Tickets will be sold at a future date so stay tuned to Pittsburgh Underground for more info! Also, don’t forget to check out the Official No Name Players Website for more information about all the great events from our favorite wife / husband team of Tressa Glover and Don DiGiulio and the entire gang at The No Name Players!
