Interactive drama / 9 f / Simple set
Audience participation in this courtroom drama creates a profoundly engaging excursion into a world of women who are survivors and abusers. Actually a farcical play within a play, the drama opens as members of a radical feminist theatre group, the Emma Goldman Theatre Brigade, are about to implement their innovative lottery system aimed at insuring equal opportunity for all. They each draw the role they will play on this evening from a hat, putting sisterhood to an iron test. The performance that follows is the conspiracy trial of five women who are accused of denying the defendant Anastasia Romanov her identity. Audience members decide throughout to overrule or sustain the attorneys' motions, creating a different play at every performance.
