Minnetonka Theatre presents one-act play.
While this one-act play is set in 1972, its story is timeless and is brought to the community by way of Minnetonka High School’s Minnetonka Theatre, one of the premier high school programs in the Midwest.
Based on an original podcast by Radiolab/WNYC Studios and directed by Lauren Bartelt and Trent Boyum, Honk & Holler portrays the story of Carolyn Whitener, owner of a drive-up dive bar in Stillwater, Oklahoma.
Whitener becomes the reluctant plaintiff in a historic Supreme Court case argued by Ruth Bader Ginsburg, then a young lawyer with the American Civil Liberties Union, who convinces an all-male Supreme Court to bring a discrimination case against young men who frequent Whitener’s establishment.
Audiences will view a story of two very different women and how, together, they changed the world. The performance is part of the Minnesota State High School League’s one-act competition.
Times to be determined, January 28 at Arts Center on 7; 18285 Highway 7, Minnetonka; 952.401.5898; minnetonkatheatre.com
