THE GIRL / THE WOMAN
By Aanisa Vylet
Jun 28 — Jul 7, 2018 | Riverside Theatres
I’m a polite feminist.
A girl and a woman.
Beyonce on a bad day.
I can never understand Al Jazeera.
I found a love in a hopeless place – he just doesn’t know it yet.
Forget everything you know about me.
Come over for a visit.
Just stay calm at all times.
The Girl trips over her sexuality and lands on her mother’s traditions. She turns to her best friend and enabler – the Internet. Her mother, meanwhile, hates to leave the house – a tiring but familiar refuge from an ever-changing outside world.
Twelve years in the making, wild and funny until it’s not, The Girl / The Woman, is an exhilarating two-woman collision of body and mind, desire and tradition, language and visionary theatricality.
