Spiderwoman Theater (Kuna/Rappahannock), the longest running woman theater company in North America, was founded in 1975 by three Brooklyn sisters -- Lisa Mayo, Gloria Miguel, and Muriel Miguel -- who have performed their original plays around the world. In this retrospective of the 30-year landmark, archival and performance video footage, photos, memorabilia, and Kuna and Rappahannock objects from the sisters' collection are on view.
