The Judith Project is hiring for 2 roles! Producer & Stage Manager

We're building up our badass team for a new, full-length theater piece to be performed December 2018...
 

About the piece:
This is a reconstruction of the Jewish myth of Judith. Judith was a heroine who stood up to the Jewish patriarchy and defended her tribe against a violent imperial army by seducing and then cutting of the head of General Holofernes. She saves an entire region from decimation with the help of one female companion.
