THE MEN IN ME: Our Fathers, Our Sons, and Our Brothers... weaving more compassion and power into their stories
The Men in Me is written and performed by Anita Woodley, the creator of the award-winning breast health show "Mama Juggs". This new show, The Men in Me, is debuting at Common Ground Theatre and tells the stories of young males in America - young and old, straight and gay, liberated and incarcerated - who hunger to grow beyond bleak circumstances and dismal statistics. Their chosen roads - whether dead-ending or circling back or opening up - helped shape Woodley into the woman she is today. Anita is a former Award-Winning Producer for WUNC's The Story with Dick Gordon Journalist and the 2012 Durham Arts Council's Emerging Artists in Drama.

Recently produced in London, and Off-Broadway in New York City, Tribes is a play about human identity, communication, and love. Billy's family, like every other, is a club. You can be as rude as you like, as possessive as you like, as critical as you like. Arguments are often seen as a way of expressing love for one another.
