Raleigh Little Theater Performance: “What We’re Up Against”

January 12 - January 28

Tickets and more information

Set in a highly competitive architecture firm, this play is an explosive and hilarious look at the complicated battle of the sexes raging across Cubicle Land. A funny, yet insightful, view of what it means to be female in a male-dominated career and one woman’s response when she tires of slamming into the glass ceiling.

By Theresa Rebeck

Directed by Heather J. Strickland

Important note: The production will now be performed at William Peace University.

Based on recent developments related to the renovations of the Gaddy-Goodwin Theatre, we’re moving What We’re Up Against. The biggest factor impacting the delay in reopening the Gaddy-Goodwin is the need to install additional structural support in the space. The new location for What We’re Up Against is the Leggett Theatre at William Peace University (MAP). While this isn’t what we’d originally planned, we’re excited about doing this show at Peace. It’s a new partnership for RLT and it’s a beautiful, intimate space to perform in.

Jan 12: Post-Show Panel Discussion

Following the opening night performance, a panel of architects will discuss their reactions to the play, gender equity within architecture, and some things we can all consider when it comes to supporting each other in the workplace. This panel will be moderated by Erin Sterling Lewis from in situ studio. The panel will include:

Moderator, ERIN STERLING LEWIS, AIA, is the co-founder of in situ studio, founder of ACTIVATE NC, and Professor of the Practice at NCSU College of Design.

Show times:

  • Thursdays-Saturdays at 8:00pm
  • Sundays at 3:00pm
