ROLE CALL is a world premiere double bill about self-discovery and claiming hard truths. The featured one-woman plays are written and performed by veteran foolsFURY artists Deborah Eliezer and Michelle Haner, and directed by foolsFURY founder and co-artistic director Ben Yalom. In (dis)Placed[d], Eliezer unravels her identity as the daughter of an Iraqi Jew, refugee and spy. In Sheryl, Hamlet and Me, Haner examines her life ambitions and career choices through the lens of her Harvard dormmate Sheryl Sandberg - of Facebook fame - and Shakespeare's tragic Prince of Denmark.
"Role Call features brave and imaginative performances by two powerhouse artists who have been working together for years," said Yalom. "Michelle and Deborah use the space of the theater to delve through deeply personal material. Each in her own way asks, What are the roles I claim for myself, and what are the roles that have been thrust upon me? How do I stand up and be counted and heard?"
