Virtual Spotlight Reading: Fefu and Her Friends
Limited Tickets Available!
Presented as a script-in-hand Zoom reading, this iconic feminist play by Cuban American playwright María Irene Fornés is a unique environmental theatre event unlike anything you've ever seen. Directed by Lauren Brooke Ellis.
Although ostensibly about a group of women who gather to plan a fundraiser, in her play Fornés breaks apart and examines what it means to exist within the bounds of patriarchy, both externally and internally. As the group of women explore their own relationships to these systems and to each other, the rules of realism blur and everything takes on deeper and metaphoric meanings. Much like a cubist painting, this play is an experiment in perception that asks the audience to never take things at face value.
Fefu and Her Friends contains emotionally impactful incidents and dialogue. For those who may be concerned, content and trigger warnings are available for review at www.hollins.edu/theatre/
A moderated talkback about the play and the playwright will take place after the performances on April 29 & 30.
