Grab a cupcake, put on a name tag, and prepare to be thrown into the world of the Christian right, where sexual purity workshops and anti-abortion rallies are sandwiched between karaoke sing-alongs, Christian EDM raves, and pro-life slumber parties. After years of immersive research and workshops, playwright and actor Madeline Joey Rose launches a fully revamped version of MOM BABY GOD -- her controversial solo show that brings the audience face-to-face with American girl culture in the right-wing.
Director Lise Bruneau, company member and co-founder of Taffety Punk, says, "Madeline has very intelligently taken a subject with a great deal of controversy around it and delivers, often verbatim, content that pro-lifers use. Comment-free. The audience is able to come to their own conclusions about what that might mean or what impact that could have."
Its 2020 and the anti-abortion movement has a new sense of urgency. Teens 4 Life is live on Instagram from the Students for Life of America Conference, and right-wing teenagers are vying for popularity while preparing for political battle. Our tour guide is fourteen-year-old Destinee Grace Ramsey. Destinee ascends to prominence as the new It-Girl of the Christian right while struggling to contain her crush on John Paul, a flirtatious Christian boy with blossoming YouTube stardom and a purity ring. While Rose delivers authentic context, setting the play deep inside the right-wing's youth training ground, Destinee's struggle is the heart of the story.
