Ivy Theatre Presents 'THE FEMINISM OF SOFT MERLOT,' Begin. Today
Ivy Theatre Company presents the world premiere of The Feminism of a Soft Merlot or (How the Donkey Got Punched), an original play by award-winning playwright, Micheline Auger (recipient of the 2012 Paul Green Award) and directed by Audrey Alford. Dedicated to dynamic storytelling that explores the human condition in a visceral way, Ivy Theatre Company is working with Funny... Sheesh Productions in a space sharing partnership to promote artistic union and collaboration within the New York City independent theatre scene. In addition to sharing a space, the companies will be using the same production team and uniting their promotional efforts, as well as, hosting a joint fundraiser. The Feminism of a Soft Merlot or (How the Donkey Got Punched) is published by Indie Theater Now.
Sexually adventurous Kareena delves into monogamy with her boyfriend Teddy, while her inhibited best friend, Sam, starts dating Kyle, a pornographer. After a makeover, a scandal, and a documentary, the real question is, who is the donkey? The play asks what sexual empowerment and intimacy is in the age of online porn, dating, and pop culture. The cast features: Diana Oh, Lauren Dortch Crozier, Patrick Daniel Smith, and Justin Anselmi.
