It's Opening Weekend! TWO ELIZAS Runs Two Weeks Only!



TWO ELIZAS Opens This Weekend!

Join us for this World Premiere!

Created and Performed by Jenny Mercein

May 4-May 14 (Two Weeks Only)

Two Elizas explores the true story of actor-playwright Jenny Mercein’s ancestor, Eliza Mercein Barry, whose landmark 1847 U.S. Supreme Court case Barry v. Mercein established a woman's right to retain custody of her child.

Jenny juxtaposes Eliza's story with her own complicated journey to motherhood, in a moving intergenerational reflection on resilience and women's rights.
