Illuminated Dresses
Burning Coal Theater, Murphey School
Raleigh, NC
Share this event:

Can you recall a time when what you wore, or wish you'd worn, changed the course of your life? These short monologues by women playwrights explore intimate moments involving a dress or other garment that transformed their lives. We hear from an executive constrained in a suit, a black woman surrounded by white dresses, a Girl Scout whose family couldn't afford the uniform, a trans woman recalling a pivotal moment in her youth, a mother persuading her daughter to wear a sacred garment, and many more. The monologues cover a range of moods, ages, and experiences.

Recommended for mature audiences, ages 14+

NOTE that tickets at door are $20 CASH OR CHECK ONLY
