Hailed as "slyly riotous" and "dazzlingly reconceived" by The Hollywood Reporter, FEMMES: A TRAGEDY reimagines Clare Booth Luce's 1936 play THE WOMEN against a backdrop of contemporary femme lesbian/queer women (sub)culture. When the curator of a burlesque show'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 writer of TALES OF A FOURTH GRADE LESBO.
FEATURING: Stephanie Messer, Morgen Chang, Dana Lee Thompson, Jill Iverson, Briana Patnode, Amanda Hofman-Fretham, Briana Zora Libby, and Reyna Rios.
