The Orchestra of the Moon is a Portland-based early music band, which was started as the house orchestra for Rag on a Stick Theatre, to get people playing medieval music together, as well as to bring the joy of early music to audiences who might not otherwise be exposed to it, for example, the pub crowd.

Theatre Makers is co-creating a new play called You Too. The play is about abuse, the #metoo movement, and hope for the future.
You Too tells the story of a female Senate candidate running against a former Hollywood director accused of harassing women. The media orchestrates the race between the two candidates and manipulates the reaction from the audience, playing with true and false accusations, and questioning the whole nature of harassment. Throughout the course of events in the play, our characters evolve and learn to find their own ground. Join us for a thought-provoking and inspiring theater experience!
Join us just after the play for a live panel discussion with the director/co-playwright, cast members, and representatives from nonprofit organizations such as SAVE and Narika. You’ll be able to ask questions (confidentially if you prefer) and get the latest info on both the play and the resources available for victims of workplace harassment and domestic violence.
This original play will have a limited run of performances in Fremont and Oakland. Produced by the Theatre Makers project of Ritual Art Troupe, a small non-profit organization, the play employs a diverse cast of actors and creative personnel living in the San Francisco Bay Area. Iryna Lymar will direct the play, which she co-wrote with Stardust Doherty.
TRIGGER WARNINGS: Adult language, scenes of domestic and work abuse, and simulations of slapping and harassment. No nudity. Parents, please consider the maturity level of your teenager before bringing them to the play — no pre-teens please.
You Too will have a limited run of performances in the San Francisco Bay Area:
7:00pm on November 9, 2019, at Fremont Community Center, 40204 Paseo Padre Parkway, Fremont, CA
8:00pm on November 14, 2019, at First Unitarian Church, 685 14th Street, Oakland, CA

The opening night show of the “You Too” play on November 9, 2019, in Fremont, was a smashing success!
It’s not too late to join us for the Oakland shows on November 14 and 15. You can buy tickets here.
During much of the performance, not a pin drop could be heard as the audience was mesmerized by the compelling and emotional drama exploring harassment, abuse, and the #metoo movement. In other scenes, the audience waved protest signs and hollered right along with the actors.
