SYNOPSIS: Bertha Mason is a new play exploring a character often disregarded in Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte. Bertha Mason was a scape-goat character whose fate was sealed by white-feminism. In Victorian literature black women were provided with demonic, often vampiric traits to discourage white men from interacting or courting them, Bertha Mason is just one of those examples. Now the story is in her hands: the hands of a black woman reimagining her own fate. Bertha Mason expands on the definition of feminism, exposing the mistreatment of the "demonic" woman and how black women were desired but forced to suffer.
Audition Date: Saturday, March 14th (3:30-6:00) 1400 Castlefield Ave
