Nurse Sluts/A Lady Does Not Scratch her Crotch
Three new military nurses are dropped into a war zone and thrown into action with the rest of their team. In a world where soldiers are sticks and blood is wine, they confront the parts of the job they didnt sign up for. Full of movement, songs, drills, red carpet interviews, and magical healing through sexual pleasure, NURSE SLUTS is an inventive play about women at war.
Written by Shelby Green and Julia Greer.

A LADY DOES NOT SCRATCH HER CROTCH
Once upon a time, there was a young girl, and she was not a princess or a pretty girl waiting to be a princess. Her hair got in her face and her mouth. Her dress did not fan out around her when she sat down. And she did not see a happily ever after on the horizon. A Lady Does Not Scratch her Crotch looks at how growing up in the shadow of a particular Disney princess can be confusing, confining and at times consuming.
