Synopsis of JUST DESERTS:

Since the beginning of time, the three Furies have dedicated their immortal lives to the ancient, honorable principle of a slit throat for a slit throat. But when a young man walks into hell seeking help to avenge his father's death by killing his mother they draw the line. And when he ignores their warnings against matricide and then begs for mercy, the moral order of the universe hangs in the balance.

Mission of THOSE WOMEN:

Those Women make theatre for people who love great stories and want to explore big questions. Our plays are rooted in the stories that have made us who we are the myths, tales and legends of western culture. We approach these tales from new angles, giving the stage to hidden truths of gender and power and to the unheard voices of women. We practice radical hospitality everybody is welcome regardless of their ability to pay. We only ask that our audiences come to the theatre curious; we promise to leave them more curious still.

History of THOSE WOMEN:

When we were as yet too young for other sorts of debauchery to hold much appeal, we fell in love with great stories. Mostly these were stories by Dead White Guys. Homer and Chaucer, Shakespeare and Sophocles, myths and folklore of every variety, we loved them all. To this day, we are subject to their power they make our heads spin and our pulses race. But we also recognize that in these classic tales, the voices of women are often silenced and their lives relegated to the margins. That's a sobering fact. And we'd rather stay giddy with the joy of tales worth telling. So, on International Women's Day 2014 we formed THOSE WOMEN PRODUCTIONS to explore classic stories from new angles.
