"Gambit, the intriguing new work by Ross Tedford Kendall...Artemisia’s inaugural production,… in which two women beat each other with both words and fists and voila – a very successful 90 minutes of theater!…Suavely costumed by Raquel Adorno, Miriam Reuter and Suzanne Petri go at other like tigers and it is great fun to watch….There are loop holes and red herrings a-plenty. ….Reuter and Petri are great, and more importantly, are great together…Ann Davis has given the production a fine looking set, with a nice lighting by Zak Malisch. Aaron Pagel’s fights look dangerous and scary. Julie Proudfoot’s direction has the tension turned up high….Artemisia is dedicated to scripts which empower women, and the city and country need more groups with this focus.
Gambit is playing at Signal Theatre Ensemble, 1802 West Berenice through November 24. Find more information and order tickets here"
A seemingly innocent game of chess symbolizes the battlefield between a brilliant but troubled law student, and her aunt, a powerful U.S. attorney, as they fight over the law student's imperiled future.
Ross Tedford Kendall's smart and uncompromising examination of the relationship between an ambitious US Attorney and her violently rebellious niece won the audience vote at Artemisia's 2012 Fall Festival of Staged Readings. This world premiere will open for an exclusive, limited run in November 2013. Julie Proudfoot will direct Suzanne Petri and Miriam Reuter in this entertaining, insightful two-hander that challenges the perception of women.

“A Little Touch Of Coward in the Night”
The Words and Music of
“Suzanne Petri happens to be the exception that proves the rule, her work at once dramatically penetrating and musically evocative… superb singer John Eskola, veteran pianist-vocalist Bob Moreen and formidable actor-narrator Robert Breuler. Together, these artists interchangeably performed…the evening sketched the arc of Coward's career.”
