About the event

As a living art form, theatre has always been a reflection of society, adapting to provide commentary on current events. The power of theatre to not only entertain but also to provoke thought and provide perspective.  We are excited to introduce our Social Justice Table Read Series. In this series, we will be presenting various plays that look at social justice issues from different viewpoints. In the first session on 2/4 will read through the work. The second session 3/3 will continue with our reading and then discuss (ideally over a socially curated adjacent event). Registrants will be furnished a copy of the work.

 

SYNOPSIS:

Gracie Gardner's award-winning play sketches a dystopian setting with an eponymous main character who, in a number of absurd encounters, resists stereotypical gender constructions and socially predetermined life models. Far more than just a feisty criticism of patriarchal systems, the play turns power structures upside down and offers a surreal and comic parable of sexual self-determination that challenges conservative gender constructs and our patriarchal status quo with vigor and irony.
