When a House­wife, Grand­mother,  Col­lege Stu­dent,  Abused Woman,  Hus­tler,  Can­cer Sur­vivor and  Mis­tress  all come together on the same stage, you have a recipe for a the­atri­cal event that will be talked about for years to come. You have EMERGE 7 Women 7 Stools. This is a jour­ney through the lives of seven very dif­fer­ent women — reliv­ing their strug­gles, their feel­ings,  their pain, while watch­ing them over­come every imag­in­able obsta­cle. You’ll roar with laugh­ter and cry in solace as real­ity quickly sets in. Some sto­ries are all too famil­iar, while oth­ers are not famil­iar at all. A 4-piece kick­ing pol­ished band sets the tempo and quickly moves the mono­logues and phe­nom­e­nal singing along as this diver­si­fied group of actresses deliver an unfor­get­table mas­ter­piece. Meet the House­wife whose life is not her own but that of her hus­band and chil­dren — which leaves her to ask the ques­tion “Who am I?” Then, there is the Grand­mother whose retire­ment is abruptly inter­rupted as she takes on the rear­ing of her grand­chil­dren because her daugh­ter is an unfit mother,  and the the hilar­i­ous Hus­tler who seeks the easy way out by being a pro­fes­sional booster — as her child­hood leaves audi­ences shak­ing their heads. There’s the frus­trated Mis­tress who set­tles for mar­ried men because sin­gle ones have noth­ing to offer but her choices lead her down an unex­pected path, and the peer pres­sured  Col­lege Stu­dent  whose desire to impress her friends brings tragic results. And finally, there are the Abused Woman whose men­tal and phys­i­cal abuse cause her to flee, and the Can­cer Sur­vivor who makes it through and teaches oth­ers to do the same

This fas­ci­nat­ing pro­duc­tion  is per­formed in vignettes. The sto­ries are all dif­fer­ent but are mag­i­cally con­nected as these seven women move the minds, hearts, bod­ies, and souls of their char­ac­ters quickly and pow­er­fully as one at a time they bring them to life. These sto­ries have no bound­aries, their faces tell no lies.  They are black, they are white , they are young,  they are old. Their skin col­ors may vary  but they all  share an unde­ni­able thread — they are all WOMEN shar­ing the same plight — and they all EMERGE!
