‘A Woman’s Heart’ Set to Premier Thursday at the Cotuit Center for Arts

COTUIT – Starting next week and running through the end of the month, Cotuit Center for Arts will present Judith Partelow’s highly acclaimed play, “A Woman’s Heart,” with story and direction by Dana McCoy and Partelow herself.

This new collaboration by McCoy and Partelow reduces the number of characters from four to three and features a new story approach, shaping Partelow’s poetry into a compelling, music-filled journey through a writer’s life.

Replete with life events and cultural references from the 1950’s to the present, the play will resonate with all, particularly baby boomers.

The story tells the tale of three close friends, portrayed by Partelow, McCoy, and Rod Owens, who reconnect at their 50th high school reunion to find that their mutual inspirations from and impacts on each other have not only endured, but have, ultimately, made all the difference in their respective lives.

“A Woman’s Heart,” was first presented in 2017 and received critical acclaim with critics deeming it, “funny, sexy, gutsy, and vulnerable.”

“The play is pure magic,” said Margaret Van Sant, executive director of Provincetown Dramatic Arts.

The show is infused with the music of the boomer era, plus original music written by McCoy, Owens, and Partelow’s daughter Amanda Sevak.

An award-winning writer, as well as Actors’ Equity actor and director, Partelow began writing poetry when she was in third grade.

In 2019 The Cape Cod Writers Center recognized Partelow’s achievements with the Kevin V. Symmons Scholarship for Second Career Writers.

As a singer, songwriter, and instrumentalist, Dana McCoy has topped Billboard charts and toured, directed, taught, and performed her own and other people’s original rock musicals internationally.

Rod Owens is an actor, musician, and artist who has appeared in “The Weight of Silence,” and other plays at Cotuit Center for the Arts.

The show is set to begin Thursday, September 12th and run Thursdays through Saturdays at 7:30 p.m., and Sunday at 2 p.m., until Sunday, September 29th at the Black Box Theater.

Tickets are $20, $15 for members, for more information, visit www.artsonthecape.org or call 508-428-0669.
