Speaking Our Truth

Speaking Our Truth is the second of three exhibits MAAG will mount at The Philadelphia Theatre Company this season in conjunction with their production of Everything is Wonderful. The themes for this exhibit include overcoming tragedy, finding the strength to move on with our lives, the power of reconciliation, and surrendering to forgiveness. Themes for submitting artists to ask: How do we live with disillusionment and anger? Do we truly forgive? Can we resolve past pain, hurt, and issues of abandonment?

We invite you to take part in the Opening Reception February 21, at 7 PM. The show will be on display in the upstairs gallery space at The Suzanne Roberts Theatre from February 14 – March 8, 2020.

Everything is Wonderful by Chelsea Marcantel is the story of an Amish couple that exhibits an act of unfathomable forgiveness after their two sons are killed in a car accident. It speaks of the traditions of Amish life and the very defined roles of women and men within the family and the community. As the family struggles to cling to their way of life, they are forced to find a way forward inside their insular community, practicing mercy and forgiveness to heal the wounds of the past.

The Suzanne Roberts Theatre is located at 480 S Broad St, Philadelphia, PA 19146.
