A new play by Mara Thomas
Directed by Caitilin Wells
Featuring Allison Altman, Dawn L. Troupe, Jaz Astwood, Kimberlee Walker, and Lauren Dortch-Crozier
Designed by Adam Lindquist, Olivia Cucinotta, and Willie Gambucci
YEAR OF THE MONKEY is a partly scripted, partly devised play centered on female rage, ritual, intuition, getting back to nature, and modern warfare. It follows a squadron of 5 women who are waging literal war on the patriarchy deep in the jungle, Green Beret-style, and digs into how we unknowingly replicate the same bullshit abuses in our struggles to dismantle the master's house.
