HANGING GEORGIA

an original play with music

about Georgia O'Keeffe

by Sharmon J. Hilfinger and Joan McMillen

  • The Thick House, San Francisco, CA
  • October 8 – 30, 2011
  • Co-Production of BootStrap Theater Foundation and TheatreFIRST

 Hanging Georgia is a collaborative production by two groundbreaking San Francisco Bay Area theatre companies, BootStrap Theater Foundation and TheatreFIRST. 

 Hanging Georgia tells the story of a young O’Keeffe struggling to make her way as a single woman teaching in Texas.  Painting, falling in love, painting her feelings of falling in love, wanting to paint more than anything else, except…wanting Stieglitz. Alfred Stieglitz, famous New York photographer and magnate art dealer. Georgia’s journey from a Texas art teacher to a New York icon is full of passion and drama.  For O’Keeffe it is a rags to riches story, for Stieglitz, it is Pygmalion. Sparks fly when two such towering artists live and work together.

Your donations will go directly toward paying our highly trained Slanter Performance Ensemble. We begin rehearsals on August 29th, the day after our Kickstarter Campaign ends. There is nothing more demanding, nor more rewarding than this collaborative work. In a time when funding for the arts has been drastically cut, whatever level you can pledge toward the care and feeding of our creative team will be most appreciated.

BootStrap Theater Foundation is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit corporation; your donation is tax deductible according to the law.  EIN 30-0639969

The BootStrap Slanters thank you for your support: Nick Allen, Bear Capron, Sharmon Hilfinger, Joan McMillen, Jake Margolin, Emma Nicholls, Paz Pardo, Michael Sommers, Michael Craig Storm, Juliet Strong, Maryssa Wanlass, Susanne Wong
