SCAM A LOT: The Wrong Ms. Jones

Theatre of the Oppressed NYC and Housing Works

Date: Nov 04th

In Forum Theatre, the actors present an original play chronicling an unresolved problem resulting from systemic oppression. Once the play is finished, the audience is invited to step into the play and share possible ways to attack this problem and respond to the antagonists, in what’s known as an Intervention. The actors in the play are prepared to respond to the audience member, known now as a Spect-Actor. This process of play performance and interventions is facilitated by a Joker. The goal is to engage in various problem-solving strategies that the community can use to fight back against the oppressions they face.

"The fun-loving Ms. Jones is targeted by scammers and infantilized by her family and the police. She's had enough! Based on the real-life experiences of the actors, Scam-A-Lot: The Wrong Ms. Jones, invites the audience into direct conflict with age-ism and interactions with our elders. "
