Catch a free Frameline Encore screening and Q&A of the documentary, "Yours In Sisterhood", which explores the letters to "Ms." magazine that were signed, “In sisterhood" -- but never published. Forty years later, women across the U.S. read them aloud and react, on camera, to their secrets, rants and pleas. The result is an extraordinary history of 1970s feminism: intersectional, personal, political and stunning. Director Irene Lusztig will be present for a Q&A following the film at the Piedmont Theatre in Oakland. [less-]

In an English country estate in the late-20th century, a pair of scholars sift through a haphazard trove of historical documents related to the estate's sprawling gardens. There's a chance that Lord Byron once visited the estate, killing a man in a duel, and the scholars are competing to uncover the historic truth. Meanwhile, in 1809, the 13-year-old Lady Thomasina Coverly has become preoccupied with a strange notion: that underneath the seeming randomness and chaos of the world lies a predictable, mathematical order. As the lines between past and present become increasingly blurred, the world of the play begins to echo the nearly-lost discoveries of the world's first chaos theorist. By turns touching, funny and thought-provoking, Tom Stoppard's "Arcadia" is a masterful exploration of the tension between (and reconciliation of) the Classical and the Romantic, the ordered and the disordered, and the eventual and the never-quite-becoming. Watch it all unfold at The Ashby Stage in Berkeley. [less-]

Bay Area favorite Stacy Ross returns to Custom Made to star in this vital and compelling play. It's the early 1970s, and Agnes (Ross) has turned her quiet bed and breakfast into one of the few spots where victims of domestic violence can seek refuge. But to Agnes’ dismay, her latest runaway, Mary Anne, is beginning to influence Agnes’ college-bound daughter Penny. As the drums of a feminist revolution grow louder outside her tiny world, Agnes is forced to confront her own preconceived notions about the women she’s spent her life trying to help. "When We Were Young and Unafraid" reminds us that the path to the rights enjoyed by today’s women was perilous and their future is not guaranteed, while telling a personal tale of change and redemption.
