Do I inspire fear in you? I shouldn't. Glow glow glow, sparkle like a star.

A pair of radical feminist ex-strippers scour the USA on a murderous rampage against right-wing pro-life conservatives, documenting their exploits online in explicit detail. Meanwhile, a slacker screenwriter named Owen tries to bang out his magnum opus in a hotel room as his best friend holds forth on rape and other manly enterprises. Paul Angelo directs the Portland Premiere of this surreal, darkly comic play that The New Yorker describes as "variously a rant, a riff, a rumble - about our notions of naturalism, objectification, perversity, and beauty. " Also: Jane Fonda appears. With legwarmers.

Defunkt's Production of That Pretty Pretty is presented in partnership with Planned Parenthood Advocates of Oregon. Proceeds from all Friday evening performances will be donated to PPAO
