About the Show

Part of FringeNYC: Rizpah watches her sons rot, Tamar disguises herself as a prostitute, Bathsheba is an innocent victim. Each week contemporary women met and questioned the experiences of forgotten women in the Bible. It was scary to speak. The result was eye-opening.

Ambitious, Absorbing, Entertaining, Confusing, A truly original vision with a strong set of statements delivered in an oddly understated fashion

See it if you are interested in how women think about being women or how women think about how the Judeo-Christian tradition has thought about women.

Don't see it if you are looking to just sit back, relax and enjoy the show; you do have to pay attention.

Ambitious, Great writing, Intense, Original, Relevant

See it if you are a woman, or know a woman. This is extremely important, brave theatre.

Don't see it if you aren't prepared for a truth marathon. It goes on a little long, but, honestly, even just seeing Act One would be worth it.

Absorbing, Ambitious, Intense, Relevant, Thought-provoking

See it if You are interested in seeing a different side of faith. This is an insightful view into the unknown side of Christianity.

Don't see it if You have sensitivities around topics of assault. Potential trigger warning.

Original, Profound, Entertaining, Absorbing, Relevant

See it if You are a Christian seeking dialogue. Having said that, I am not a Christian and I was deeply moved by many moments in the show.

Don't see it if You just want some uncomplicated fun...although there are many funny moments in the show as well.

Ambitious, Thought-provoking, Profound, Original, Intense

See it if You are interested in hearing stories of the women of the bible being told from the perspective of women today. This show encourages women.

Don't see it if You have trouble paying attention. There is a lot of information so you do have to pay a good deal of attention to each story.

See it if you haven't considered implications of women's themes in the Bible in relationship to treatment of women then and now.

Don't see it if don't want your common thoughts about Bible stories disturbed.

Theatre is Easy
August 17th, 2016

“Some of the topics are hard to swallow and other topics are hilarious, but the entire show has a powerful message...At almost three hours, the show is on the long side...Certainly provides a new perspective to the unspoken heroines of the Bible...Shines a spotlight on the power and strength of women. The twelve diverse and dynamic actresses on stage bring life to tales that are often forgotten or shoved away."
