SATE celebrates its thirteenth year producing theatre in St. Louis with The Season of Ritual. The year’s plays will explore the definition of ritual: ceremony consisting of a series of actions performed according to a prescribed order; acts done in accordance with social custom or normal protocol; or those acts done regularly, usually without thinking.

For the second production of its Season of Ritual, SATE will present a showcase of original material through its third annual Aphra Behn Emerging Artists’ Festival. This year’s festival will consist of three plays written and directed by promising female artists. The festival is named after Aphra Behn, the British playwright, poet, translator and fiction writer from the Restoration era. As one of the first English women to earn her living by her writing, Aphra Behn broke cultural barriers and served as a literary role model for later generations of women authors.

SATE presents the Aphra Behn Emerging Artists’ Festival, March 15-17 (Friday-Sunday) at 8:00pm, at Centene Center for the Arts (4th Floor Ballroom), 3547 Olive Street.

The Festival includes the following new plays:

Burden of Proof by Delaney Piggins, directed by Kristen Strom | Performance ensemble: Maya Kelch, Samantha Auch, Sophie Murk

A play about three women on a road trip from their University to their hometown to testify as witnesses in the sexual assault case against their high school English teacher. The action of the play takes place in the car on the six hour journey home, in the courtroom the next day, and on a stage which becomes a dream-state platform for the three women to express their responses to the legal system, as well as their experiences with trauma, relationships, and oppression.

Intervals by JM Chambers, directed by Jeanitta Perkins | Performance ensemble: Chris Ware, Madelyn Boyne, Vicky Chen

A series of monologues exploring the lives of three individuals who have been profoundly affected by homelessness. Intervals examines the everyday challenges and the emotional and mental tolls of homelessness and the attempts to escape it.

V by E.K. Doolin, directed by Lana Dvorak | Performance ensemble: Kelly Howe, Morgan Maul-Smith, Ryan Lawson-Maeske

A 10-minute Yoga Play. Veronica is disillusioned with genius, so she tries yoga. Unfortunately, so do a couple of geniuses.

The production stage manager for the Aphra Behn Emerging Artists’ Festival is Summer Baer. Lighting design by Elizabeth Lund and costumes by Liz Henning.

Tickets: $15 | ARTS Card discount: $3 off tickets. Please call the SATE Box Office line at 314.827.5760 to reserve your tickets. Please mention your ARTS Card when reserving.
