Those Women Productions presents Shifting Spaces, a trio of bold new one-act plays about individuals who fight passionately for and believe courageously in their right to be themselves.

The plays reflect a broad spectrum of feminist perspectives.
vessels draws on oral histories to reveal the little-known
stories of lesbians in Nazi Germany; in They/Them, a transgender teen fights for their mothers love; and in Revelation a once-married couple takes a darkly comic tour through changing gender roles in marriage and beyond.

The production opens Friday, March 23, 2018, and plays Fridays and Saturdays at 8 pm and Sundays at 2 pm through April 8 (no performance on Easter Sunday, April 1) at the Live Oak Theater, 1301 Shattuck Avenue, Berkeley.

The plays of Shifting Spaces are:
