The Women Have Something to Say

The Women Have Something to Say tells the stories of women finding their voices through monologues and song texts written by the musicians themselves and set to music by composer Madeline Styskal.

Women musicians, especially singers, traditionally experience a kind of silencing inherent in our work, because we are always interpreting the words and music of someone else – that “someone else” usually being male. But this time, we take the stage to tell our own stories, particularly regarding conscious-raising moments when we realized that we had unique voices as women, or when we realized that our voices were being silenced. The stories are interwoven, and each woman’s monologue and song are added to the ones who have come before in a cumulative effect of solidarity by the end of the show.

The stories are told by a diverse set of women, representing different ethnicities, sexual orientations, ages, religions, and relationship statuses, and illuminated by projected graphics designed by Janine Dworin. The production aims to stand with women in the audience (and the men who support them) who are struggling to find their own voice.
