On the night of their 20th high school reunion, the self-proclaimed “Multi-Ethnic Reject Group” reconnects while they pregame in Prince George’s County, Maryland.

THE FORD/HILL PROJECT

a Waterwell production, presented by Woolly Mammoth in association with The Public Theater
September 30 

This excavation of the testimonies of Anita Hill and Christine Blasey Ford is revisited in the nation’s capital in a special debut presentation of a new play. Ford and Hill, 30 years apart, stood in front of one of the highest bodies of power in our country to publicly tell their stories about some of the most private moments of their lives. With an ensemble of four actors speaking from the verbatim transcripts of these pivotal hearings, these two women’s stories can be seen in a new light when side-by-side in Waterwell’s illuminating new work.   

 

Show titles and dates for January-June 2025 to be announced.
