Daughters of Lot

DaughtersEd2

(full-length tragicomedy)

A modern-day burlesque act with a twist, the evening’s entertainment begins as a sexy and silly retelling of an ancient story, until the performers do a trick that requires more than flexibility. Part Bible, part Brecht, part Suicide Girls — a titillating, perplexing, and vexing exploration of the ways women are taught to be “women.”

“There’s a danger with this kind of piece that the audience see only the superficial sexiness and not the dramatic purpose behind it. However, gushing responses from men and women claiming life-changing revelations as they leave the auditorium mostly prove otherwise.”
