SARA FELDER in OUT OF SIGHT

Wednesday, May 21, and Friday, May 23, 8:00 p.m.

Skirball Cultural Center

Solo theater artist and world-class juggler and out lesbian Sara Felder presents a bold new play about a nearly blind woman and her adult lesbian daughter. As they struggle for balance in their relationship, their differing views of the Israeli-Palestinian crisis underscores intergenerational differences that they must overcome in order to find common ground. Felder's unique integration of circus arts, shadow puppetry, and personal narrative invites viewers to explore the big questions of life, laughing as we recognize ourselves in her stories.

"Out of Sight is a charming night with a charismatic performer." —Philadelphia City Paper

Advance tickets available on site at the Skirball, by phone at (877) SCC-4TIX or (877) 722-4849, or online at www.skirball.org.
