PRIME Productions seeks to explore, illuminate and support women over fifty and their stories through the creative voice of the theatre. Founded in 2016 by Alison Edwards, Shelli Place and Elena Giannetti, PRIME has produced three full productions; LITTLE WARS by Steven Carl McCasland at Mixed Blood Theatre in 2017, TWO DEGREES by Tira Palmquist as part of the Guthrie's Ninth Floor Initiative in the Joe Dowling Studio Theatre in 2018 and MARJORIE PRIME by Jordan Harrison at Park Square's Andy Boss Thrust Stage in 2019. These three productions employed eleven women onstage and eight behind the scenes, twelve of which were over 50. PRIME has also produced PRIME Voices; A Staged Reading Series in the fall of 2017 and 2019. In total six plays were performed on six different nights at six different venues as staged readings utilizing the talents of more than twenty-five Twin Cities female artists over fifty.
We have been able to reschedule THE ROOMMATE by Jen Silverman to April of 2021, now at Mixed Blood Theatre, and are currently in pre-production for next fall's co-production with Park Square Theatre of THE REVOLUTIONISTS by Lauren Gunderson. Visit www.primeprods.org for details
