Sisterhood of the Traveling Pantsuits Theatre Collective Presents #GETGANDHI
August 11, 2018

Inspired by the writings of radical feminist philosopher and theologian Mary Daly, #GetGandhi - A Seriously Radical Feminist Comedy Is a world premiere, multi-character play written by award-winning playwright and actor Anne Galjour focusing on Mahatma Gandhi's infamous experiments in brahmacharya, or celibacy. Gandhi would have a young woman disrobe and sleep with him completely naked as a test to prove his seminal continence and his purity of spirit. Gandhi never saw anything wrong with this practice, but a small coven of old school bra-burning San Francisco feminists do. They plot to avenge these sex crimes. They set out for the Gandhi memorial statue, located on the Embarcadero in San Francisco, to rip it from its base, and drag it up Market Street in the middle of the night. (more...)

Synopsis:

Inspired by the writings of radical feminist philosopher and theologian Mary Daly, #GetGandhi - A Seriously Radical Feminist Comedy Is a world premiere, multi-character play written by award-winning playwright and actor Anne Galjour focusing on Mahatma Gandhi’s infamous experiments in brahmacharya, or celibacy. Gandhi would have a young woman disrobe and sleep with him completely naked as a test to prove his seminal continence and his purity of spirit. Gandhi never saw anything wrong with this practice, but a small coven of old school
bra-burning San Francisco feminists do. They plot to avenge these sex crimes. They set out for the Gandhi memorial statue, located on the Embarcadero in San Francisco, to rip it from its base, and drag it up Market Street in the middle of the night.

The play focuses on the women, their families, the backlash from their Generation X children as well as the conflict that is fueled from opposing responses to the revered hero’s celibacy experiments. To Bob, the male character who is a longtime practitioner of Gandhi’s principles of nonviolence, his hero is flawed. To his female counterparts, this flawed prince of peace is an imposter and sexual abuser. #GetGandhi explores the themes of sexual assault and the removal of statues of historical figures once deemed heroic.

#GetGandhi is extremely timely as it extends critical conversation on these issues. It is meant to be a forum that opens up dialogue in the Bay Area and beyond. As each character in the play views Gandhi’s actions through a different lens it is hoped that diverse audiences will engage in the debate.

#GetGandhi bring together some of the finest Bay Area theatrical writing and acting talent on one stage. SF favorite monologist and playwright & professor Anne Galjour (Alligator Tales, Hurricane) returns with this timely World Premiere, joined with gifted actors: Jeri Lynn Cohen (Word for Word, Magic), Patricia Silver (Word for Word, Z Collective), and Howard Swain (Aurora, ACT), Miranda Swain (ACT) and Lyndsy Kail* (Center Rep). (Miranda Swain is the daughter of Howard Swain and Nancy Carlin.) To top it off #GetGandhi is directed by renown director, actor and teacher Nancy Carlin (Shotgun, Marin Theatre Co.) We are all in for a treat with this playwright, director and stellar cast.
