DUCKLINGS by Amina Henry
Tickets for Saturday will sell out or are already sold out.  A wait list will begin at 7:30 pm at the door.

In this new play by Amina Henry (The Animals), four plucky finalists are competing for the Dance Hall Queen of Pittsburgh crown, including reigning Queen Rihanna T, determined librarian Donna, revolutionary romantic Rihanna P, and young mother Bunny. Led by a young and shady entrepreneur, the women travel to Pittsburgh from across the country to twerk their way to possible YouTube stardom. During the pageant, relationships are tested and personal dignity is challenged. Is 'twerking' empowering to women, or degrading? Is the American Dream accessible to everyone? What moves does it take to be a winner? What moves do you have to be willing to make?Ducklingsexplores the complexity of what it means to be a woman within the current American capitalist system.
