The Play: Paula 101
Paula, an art history doctoral candidate, wants the world to know about the artist Paula Modersohn Becker, the first woman to paint herself nude. So she reinvents Art History 101 into "Paula 101" to revolve around the early German Expressionist. But when her department forbids her to teach the course, and her friend Gina and her husband Martin warn against it, Paula resolves to upset the academic norms secretly with her conception of art history.
The Playwright: Pamela Hobart Carter is a playwright, poet, prose writer, and teacher who has lived more than half her life in Seattle, Washington. She grew up in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, as a landed immigrant. Her plays have been produced and read at various Seattle venues, in Montreal, and in Fort Worth. Her full-length script, Rondo, made The Icicle Creek New Play Festival final 20. She has written 6 short books in easy English published by No Talking Dogs Press. Her words have appeared in Barrow Street, The Seattle Star, The Seattle Times, and Teaching Young Children, among other publications. Summers, she hikes in the Cascades. Winters, she skis in them.
"Some of the questions in my writing: What makes a person creative?Why are our brains different?Do our memories define us?"
Come by a little early for the play and also enjoy Art Hub! What better time to interact with artists than right before a play about art & artists? Come to Art Hub from 5-7, engage with visual artists, jewelry makers & clothing creators before the show.
Playwright Pam herself is an artist and will be tabling her artwork at Art Hub along with other artists from the UHeights Artist Collective!
