The Women of “Seven”

Comprised of a series of monologues exploring the lives of women whose work places them at the forefront of humanitarian work around the globe, “Seven” is a unique “documentary play” borne of a collaboration between seven playwrights and seven female activists. Directed by Judyann Elder and starring Alex Kingston (ER), Emily Kuroda (Gilmore Girls) and Annet Mahendru (The Americans), it is returning to Los Angeles with the support of Vital Voice Global Partnership for the first time since 2012.

In conjunction with Los Angeles Theatre Works’ production of “Seven,” Ms. is proud to feature the seven women whose stories are the production’s center and story. These are the women of “Seven.”
