From the creators of Tales of a Fourth Grade Lesbo comes a new full-length drama. Femmes: A Tragedy reimagines Clare Booth Luce's 1936 play The Women against a backdrop of contemporary femme lesbian (sub)culture. When a community organizer's polyamorous girlfriend drops her overnight for a hot bartender, her friends-- an activist, an academic and a party promoter-- are thrown into girl/girl competition despite their best feminist intentions, and are ultimately forced to parse the ways butch/femme relationships do or don't replicate heterosexual stereotypes. Deconstructed burlesque interludes probe the boundaries of a visibly queer feminine aesthetic.
