The Unofficial New York Yale Cabaret, one of NYTheatre.com's "People of the Year 2005", presents Fringe 2004 hit Valiant. Arriving just in time for Women's History Month, this stirring account of women's experience of war from around the world was a sold out hit at the 2004 NYC International Fringe Festival. It won a Best of Fringe award for Lanna Joffrey's performance, was listed on numerous "Best of Fringe" lists and was New York Magazine's "Pick of the Week". Among other places, Valiant has performed at the Imagine Festival of Arts Issues and Ideas and most recently was invited to perform at the United Nations as part of the Celebration for the Committee on the Status of Women.
Adapted by Lanna Joffrey from Sally Hayton-Keeva's book Valiant Women in War and Exile. Directed by Tamilla Woodard, Valiant is a multi-media docudrama featuring thirteen women's word-for-word accounts of their courageous, devastating and sometimes humorous experiences of war. From victim to perpetrator to peacemaker, these women from all over the world have fought, struggled and survived. Their stories are chronicled in this eye-opening and heartbreaking show.
"Stark and quietly riveting. One of the shows to see at the 2004 New York International Fringe Festival." -- New York Magazine
"Powerfully yet simply recounted. As these women from diverse cultures and economic classes recite a brutal litany of humiliations, the nightmare history of twentieth-century inhumanity is resurrected." -- NYTheatre.com
