The Dirty Blondes

About: View in admin

The Dirty Blondes Theater Company's mission is feminist in nature, with a goal to break down stereotypes and encourage a nuanced, inclusive dialog. Founded in New York City by Artistic Director Ashley Jacobson and Executive Director Elizabeth Sarkady in 2012, it seeks to explore the nature of all human prejudice, subverting face value perception with sophisticated and subtle shades of distinction. Notable productions include the Off-Broadway premiere of Jacobson's (Winner, Overall Excellence in Playwriting, 2015 FringeNYC) THE AMERICAN PLAY at the Soho Playhouse; THE RESISTER PROJECT, an eight-day ACLU fundraising festival, featuring 51 artists in a revolving schedule of plays, songs, poetry and comedy; SEX by Mae West, a staged reading series spotlighting the icon's famously banned play followed by discussions with sex workers and feminist historians; and DETROIT, NY a short play festival featuring seven Detroit-based playwrights, aiming to shed light on Detroit's shifting culture and state of bankruptcy.
