She-She-She Hook & Eye Theater
About This Show
Hook & Eye Theater weaves together stories from America’s New Deal era with the modern day to create She-She-She, a magical abstraction of wilderness and identity. Inspired by the friendship between Eleanor Roosevelt and Pauli Murray, She-She-She follows the stories of six women as they forge their journeys up Bear Mountain, wrestling with the intersections of their inheritance as they are informed and molded by their past. Full of joy, soul and musicality, Hook & Eye’s work has been called “rich, intelligent, funny,” and “a testament to the collaborative process of theatre making.”
