Strong Face by Philana Imade Omorotionmwan

Bentley Jones is a Follywood actress – but everyone thinks she’s a man. Finally, in an ironic twist of gender-blind casting, she lands the female lead in a slavery-themed biopic with 19th Century Cocks. Now the trouble begins …

There is a suggested donation of $5 for this event. Reservations are required.

Parking is available in the lot on the corner of Gaylord and Iliff for $1.50 per hour.

 
 

Reservations for Strong Face are now full. To request a spot on the waiting list, please email boxoffice@athenaprojectarts.org.

Philana Imade Omorotionmwan

PLAYWRIGHT

Philana is originally from Baton Rouge, LA. Her writing frequently considers how the processes by which we are colored, sexed, sexualized, and classed can often lead to our bodies feeling like prisons that restrict us from experiencing the fullest expression of ourselves. Her full-length plays include Before Evening Comes (Princess Grace Finalist, Bay Area Playwrights Festival, Br!nk New Play Festival, and La MaMa Experiments Series), Fireflies (Women Works Runner-up, TDPS New Play Reading Series, Tantrum Rising Voices Series) and Strong Face (KCACTF NPAT Finalist). Philana earned her BA from Stanford University and is currently pursuing MFA in Playwriting.
