RED FERN THEATRE COMPANY is pleased to announce the World Premiere production of Donna Fiumano-Farley’s A SHOT AWAY, directed by Melanie Moyer Williams. A SHOT AWAY performs in a three-week limited engagement at the LABA Theatre at the 14th Street Y (344 East 14th Street between First and Second Avenues). Performances begin Thursday, March 31 and continue through Sunday, April 17. Opening Night is Saturday, April 2 (8 p.m.).
Tina Priest is dead. Is it suicide? Or, is it because, just weeks before, this American soldier reported she had been raped on her Army base in Iraq. Her mother and twin sister are left with many doubts and unanswered questions.
Priest is not alone; six other soldiers recount their experiences as survivors of military sexual trauma. A Shot Away is a docu-drama about sexual assault in the US military, based entirely on interviews with American soldiers who have been sexually assaulted by their "fellow" soldiers. In their own words, the soldiers explore this ongoing epidemic in our military and examine what can be done to address and prevent instances of sexual assault and rape in the military.
April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month. According to a 2009 U.S. Department of Defense report, there were over 3,000 reported cases of sexual assault committed by soldiers against soldiers. This number does not represent the estimated 80% of unreported cases of sexual assault.
On Tuesday, February 15th, more than a dozen U.S. veterans filed a class-action suit in federal court, attempting to force the Pentagon to change how it handles cases of military sexual trauma.
Panayiota Bertzikis, a Coast Guard veteran, is a plaintiff in the lawsuit and one of the veterans interviewed for A Shot Away."The problem of rape in the military is not only service members getting raped, but it's the entire way that the military as a whole is dealing with it," says Bertzikis. "From survivors having to be involuntarily discharged from service, the constant verbal abuse, once a survivor does come forward your entire unit is known to turn their back on you. The entire culture needs to be changed." http://tinyurl.com/APMilitarySexualTrauma
The production features scenic design by Katherine Akiko Day and lighting design by Marie Yokoyama. Ken Hall is the dramaturg.

2011 Season Proudly Presents Three World Premieres in

The examined journey is as important as the destination; changing even the view of the destination. KDNY’s Going is an evening of traveling encounters, which encourage us to embrace both the light and dark aspects of our true nature. In KDNY’s three premieres, Vinegar Hill, Formula and Going, choreographer Kathleen Dyer uses oscillating environments, tensions in camaraderie, and honest anticipation of the journey to uncover powerful realizations about oneself as a part of a whole and as whole, apart.
Vinegar Hill (Premiere) mysterious and aggressive, set against a mountainous backdrop, a quartet of women wrestle and clamor over each other in a competitive bid for control. Vinegar Hill glimpses the souring of camaraderie as the desire for autonomy erodes the relationships that once bound them together.
Going (Premiere) While traveling along a bucolic road, created through projected video, we meet a series of individuals, each with a story to tell. How did they come to be on this road at this moment? Where do they hope to end up? Amidst the twists and turns of the road ahead, the intimate details of their stories are revealed.
Formula (Premiere) is an escalating layering of duets set to Zoe Keating’s optimistic looping cello composition “Sun will Set.” Insistent melodies and inventive links reinforce the necessity of allies as the best medicine for progress.
Evergreen (2009) Inspired by a painting of a violent storm brewing over a single blade of grass, Evergreen considers the potent resiliency in nature and pursues this elusive quality, harnessing the power that it can bring to one’s life.
