The relationship between Nina and Polina, played by Alida Rose Delaney and Elizabeth Chahin, was one of the more tender and interesting portrayals of emerging love between women that I’ve seen recently.

“Presented with Ms. Weild’s company Our Voices Theater, it puts its money where its mouth is, casting-wise, nudging us to consider more deeply the notion of artists who don’t fit the standard mold.”
— New York Times
There is a disturbance brought to the story by The Woman in Black (Alida Rose Delaney), a muse or a dark angel, signing and dancing throughout the show...it is impossible to be certain who is in front of us.

Night Witches Phase II

Night Witches is one of those plays that is so well written that it draws you in immediately and refuses to let go until it has taken what it wants. The creativity and passion of its seven creators is obvious and should carry it far beyond its current incarnation...

Cast Down Release

World Premiere, Soot and Spit by Charles Mee (Obie Award Winner)

Presented by Our Voices Theater and directed by Kim Weild 

NYT Critic's Pick

“Charles Mee Jr.’s lyrical, fictionalized bio-play soot and spit conjures Castle’s world and work in a beautifully designed, dreamily evocative production directed by Kim Weild. From the moment we enter the space we are transported as [the show] springs to vivid life on a rustic, neatly cluttered set, with clever projections and pieces of playful art. It is a strange and lovely thing, a theatrical reanimation of an artist and his work.”
— New York Times
There is a disturbance brought to the story by The Woman in Black (Alida Rose Delaney), a muse or a dark angel, signing and dancing throughout the show...it is impossible to be certain who is in front of us.
— OnStage

Special guests in attendance have included: playwrights Charles Mee and Tony Kushner, folk singer Judy Collins, as well as James Castles' family.

‘... it was refreshing to see all women writing, directing, producing and acting in a story about women. Night Witches highlights female strength but also femininity.’

Delaney had never before flown... ‘It was important for me to face my fear,’ she said. ‘I could not do this show without being in the air at least once.’
