Next up we have Maria Irene Fornes’ Fefu and Her Friends! This is a feminist romp that explores female domestic and social issues in society, and it features themes of depression and death.
One of today’s post is about Jean-Paul Satre’s No Exit! This is an existentialist play with references to child murder, contemplation of life after death, and the nature of mankind.
I owe three posts today and I have been reading, so I hope you’re ready for this. First up, we got Edward Albee’s Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? It contains alcohol abuse and some sexual content. If you like couples arguing and making their guests feel awkward, you’ll love this play. Seriously, I can’t think of any other circumstances.
Today’s post is about David Ives’ Venus in Fur! The play has heavy sexual references, some violence, explicit language, and (arguably) sexist themes, but if you liked August Strindberg’s Miss Julie or E. L. James’ Fifty Shades of Grey, then you’re probably well acquainted with these themes. If you’re into metatheatricality,this play will no doubt be of interest to you.
Turns out I was on schedule and somehow I got my dates mixed up. Oh well, today’s post is about Suzan-Lori Parks’ Topdog/Underdog! There is language, sexual references, and some violent imagery, including gun violence. If you like Sam Shepard’s True West or Ralph Ellison’s the Invisible Man, then Topdog/Underdog will definitely appeal to you!
I return from NEWL 2015! It was a great experience, but it’s nice to be back in action. Today’s post is about Tennessee Williams’ The Glass Menagerie! This play includes some possibly ableist language and/or depiction and extreme Expressionism, though that second one may not be such a turn off. You’ll enjoy this play if you like memoirs, domestic plays, or family dramas.
Today’s post is about Diana Son’s Stop Kiss! This play can be uncomfortable to read, let alone watch, if homophobia triggers you. If you like tragedies with a happy ending, love conquering society, or lesbian history, you’ll probably like Stop Kiss.
