Emerald Theatre Company proudly resents the regional premiere of

inclusIVitY – the Ivy Bottini Story

Written in rhyme as a series of poems and songs, this play is a tribute to Ivy Bottini.

Ivy Bottini is a legendary activist.  For 16 years, she was married, worked as an artist at Newsday and raised two daughters.  She co-founded the New York City Chapter of NOW (National Organization for Women) with Betty Friedan, but Ivy was expelled from the organization when she came out as a lesbian.  Ivy moved to LA, wrote and toured the country in a one-woman show, fought against Proposition 6 (An initiative designed to remove gay teachers from the classroom) and Proposition 64 (An initiative to create a registry of HIV+ people, possibly quarantining them).  Ivy hosted “It’s a Gay Life” on public radio.  She fought for AIDS awareness and was an amazing human rights proponent.  She is full of sass, spunk, humor and blazing honesty.
