Electric Eye Ensemble goes into rehearsals for our newest production on May 11th! This is an exciting new show about the first women-run radio station in the country, and their coverage of the Memphis Sanitation Workers' Strike in 1968. It's a time in history that has greatly shaped the culture we live in today, and I am so excited to start exploring it.
We have work-in-progress showings on Friday, June 3rd at the Drama League Theatre Center in Tribeca, and on Tuesday, June 14th at Dixon Place. Tickets coming soon! Here's more info about the cast and production team on our website: http://electric-eye-ensemble.com/welcome-to-the-doll-den/
In Memphis, Tennessee we meet the first all-girl’s radio station, WHER. It’s 1968 and they play “music for women”, broadcasting from their studio, the Doll Den. But with the sanitation workers on strike, protesters in the street, and the garbage piling up all around them, the pristine glass box that is their studio shatters under the weight of realization. Everyone wears a facade, some are just thicker than others.
