BRAVE FACE

How many times can a woman be objectified before she decides she is more human than that? 

 

More angry than that… more vengeful than that... and how on this patriarchal earth is she gonna make all this bullsh*t fair? 

 

Em has had her womanhood threatened one too many times and when her “boyfriend” breaks her heart, she finds another layer of woman to express. Em takes her dental training out of the office & becomes a woman the world fears, one who lies, blackmails & gets what she wants. But when her past comes to catch up with her present, we beg the question… 

 

Is this really what she deserves?

 

Inspired by true life events, this story aims to share an honest and brittle narrative as a point of empowering those who struggle with trauma from sexual violence. 

DOUBLE BILL: If you're up for a full night of femmetastic theatre, then grab another ticket for Frisky Theatre's NIGHT ON BOOB MOUNTAIN (taking place right before this!)

We see one woman, yet it’s the weight of an entire culture on her shoulders’
