FEMMES // A TRAGEDY MOVES TO THE EAST SIDE

 
Workaholic Gina Young’s new play FEMMES: A Tragedy, has moved to the east side! I had the pleasure of seeing it twice (yes, twice) when it was on the west side and it left me giggling and contemplating both feminist & lesbian culture for days. Not often do you find a play relatable, sexy, hilarious, and educational.
Below are some pics exclusive to The Work Magazine.

SYNOPSIS

Femmes: A Tragedy reimagines Clare Booth Luce’s 1936 play The Women against a backdrop of contemporary femme lesbian (sub)culture. When a community organizer’s polyamorous girlfriend drops her overnight for a hot bartender, her friends— an activist, an academic and a party promoter— are thrown into girl/girl competition despite their best feminist intentions, and are ultimately forced to parse the ways butch/femme relationships do or don’t replicate heterosexual stereotypes. Deconstructed burlesque interludes probe the boundaries of a visibly queer feminine aesthetic. From the creators of Tales of a Fourth Grade Lesbo.
