FEMMES: A Tragedy
Femmes: A Tragedy is a contemporary lesbian adaptation of Clare Booth Luce's 1936 play The Women... and after a hit run on the west side, the girls are finally coming east to the Lyric-Hyperion Theatre & Cafe!!!
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 in this hit comedy (er... tragedy!) from the creators of Tales of a Fourth Grade Lesbo.
Starring: Sara Ann Buccolo, Olivia Bellafontaine, Kristelle Monterrosa, Arielle Marie McFadden, Sarah Dulany Dryden, Devri Richmond and Christine Treibel.
Written and Directed by Gina Young.
