When Marlene celebrates her promotion to the top of a London employment agency, she invites all of her heroines from art and history to join her: a fearless Victorian-era explorer, a Japanese Emperor’s mistress turned Buddhist nun, a woman who may have indeed been the Pope, the Canterbury Tales’ obedient Clerk’s wife and a Flemish peasant-avenger who’s been to Hell and back. Seamlessly entwining dark comedy and political critique, this innovative and powerful modern classic has never been more relevant.
“This show prompts us to question whether the sacrifices we’re willing to make and the values we place on getting ahead in a so-called man’s world are really worth the ride.”
