Triangle playwright Scott Allan Pardue says that our experiences, for good or for bad, are what give us our soul and separate us from the rest of the animal community. In three new one-character plays, he explores this idea by examining a single event in a female character's past that challenged her and made her who she is in the present. Women's Voices, featuring local actors Bobbi Vinson, Flynt Burton and Lisa Betz, will be presented by New World Stage and Mary Michele Apparel & Design this week at Raleigh's Artspace. The first play in the series, "The Trope," is a provocative one-act that reveals the truth behind the mind games played out by the three characters represented by one actor. The second play, "Hookin' for Jesus," is a look at how one woman mistakes God's will and ends up doing the right thing anyway. The third play, "Inhaling Red," tells the story of a woman's struggle to define herself. See these performances March 20-23 at 8 p.m. at Artspace. Call (919) 247-4440 for details.
