Mrs. Packard by Emily Mann

March 15 - April 9th, 2017

Directed by Emily Ranii
Co-Produced by Bridge Repertory Theater & Playhouse Creatures Theatre Company


Illinois, 1861. Proclaimed insane by her husband, Elizabeth Packard is committed against her will to an asylum. Inspired by true events, Emily Mann’s stunning American drama chronicles one woman’s struggle to fight for her life and, in the process, right a system gone wrong.


After co-producing a critically acclaimed production of The Libertine in 2013, Bridge Rep and Playhouse Creatures will team up once again to bring Mrs. Packard to the Multicultural Arts Center and the greater Boston community.

To learn more about Mrs. Packard and the woman behind the scenes check out our interview with Bridge Repertory's founder Liv D'Ambrosio (playing Mrs. Packard). View it HERE!

Here is the inside scoop on how this great event idea came about in the words of event organizer Kate Economidis.


“Two people that have had a huge impact on my life are Shelley Neill & Richard Honan. Richard Honan will do anything to help anyone out. When his daughter Kelly decided to join the military, Richard wanted Kelly to receive "care packages" that would make her know they were thinking of Kelly & to say thank you for serving for our Country. So basically one “care package" turned into 3,500 packages totaling 33,000 lbs! Since this is an amazing idea I have devoted most of my charity work to raising money for this awesome cause. And anyone can give Richard a name & address and he will get a care package to them. Shelley Neill and her passion for the arts is mind blowing, and her love for equal love makes me want to do more! Shelley is always thinking of how she can help & devoting her life to music! It makes me proud to be able to help raise money for The Multicultural Arts Center, so we can keep on providing a space for diversity in the arts for dancers, musicians & visual artists, and provide something great for the community.
