Convoy 31000

an original devised play about French Resistance women

Artistic Director Tina Taylor and the Theatre Lunatico ensemble present Convoy 31000: an original devised production exploring the histories of women who fought fascism in the French Resistance during World War II. Convoy 31000 is the story of 230 women of the French Resistance who were arrested and sent to Auschwitz. Only 49 survived. Incorporating narrative forms — poetry, music, song, and movement — the Lunatico ensemble shines a light on these overlooked female heroes of WWII, with a piece collectively created by ensemble members Maria Grazia Affinito*, Asha Alvarez, Michael Barr*, Deborah Cortez, Nash Hascall, Kenneth Matiss, Shawn Oda, Gwyneth Richards*, Lauri Smith, and Nicole Thordsen (*denotes member of Actor’s Equity Association – An Equity Approved Project). Design team includes Gideon Jones (scenic), Nancy Maher (costumes), Kevin Droese (sound), Rob Bradshaw (lighting), Andrea Weber (fight choreography), Madge Grahn (stage manager), Tina Taylor (director), and Cathy Wilmoth (producer).
