These Streets: Telling Women's Stories

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The creators of the Seattle play, "These Streets" discuss their journey to create the most talked about production in Seattle this year.

THESE STREETS is an unconventional theatrical play and history project, inspired by women rock musicians in Seattle during the famed grunge years. Spearheaded by rock guitarist, Gretta Harley (faculty member at Cornish College of the Arts, and guitarist who played in several bands during the era), actor/playright Elizabeth Kenny and Sarah Rudinoff (Actress, Writer and Stranger Genius Award Winner), THESE STREETS is inspired by over 35 interviews conducted with and about the many women rockers who were integral to the Seattle music scene but have been overshadowed by the familiar bands and retrospectives.
