On September 24th, The Front Porch will host Conspire Theatre, the Gina Chavez Trio, and Rain Collectors for an evening of performance and discussion. Proceeds will benefit Conspire Theatre’s work with formerly incarcerated women.

When:
Thursday, September 24th from 7 to 9 p.m.

Where:
All Saints’ Episcopal Church
209 W. 27th Street
Austin, TX 78705

What:
The Front Porch will present an evening of fun, music, and performance benefitting Conspire Theatre’s ongoing work with formerly incarcerated women.  Doors open at 6:30 p.m., so come early to grab a drink and mingle, then enjoy music from The Gina Chavez Trio and Rain Collectors, an excerpt from Conspire Theatre’s new play, “Mothers & Daughters,” and a discussion with the artists.

Why:
All proceeds support the development of Conspire Theatre’s 2016 production of their new play, “Mothers & Daughters.” Created and performed by an ensemble of Austin women who have experienced jail or prison, “Mothers & Daughters” uses interviews, movement, photography and storytelling to explore the effects of incarceration on mothers and families in Central Texas. Our productions provide a forum for formerly incarcerated women to discuss and analyze their experiences in a supportive, positive, and collaborative environment. We seek to reduce stigma, foster greater openness in the community, and educate the public about the effects of incarceration on women and their families.

How:
Ticket Information:

*  $15-20 suggested donation; $10 student/senior tickets available. Space permitting, nobody will be turned away based on ability to pay.
