About the show

IRT Theater presents a new play about six twenty-something feminists whose attempt to take on the patriarchy results in some unexpected complications. More…

Zumba. Wine. Take-­out. Porn. In the quest for personal and sexual empowerment, the Sister Support Group for the Daily Trials of Being a Woman tackles them all. But acts of feminist revolt rarely go unpunished, and the women find themselves caught up in something much bigger than their own liberation.

Ambitious, Entertaining, Disappointing, Great acting, Irresponsible

See it if you are interested in excellent acting, intrigued by the concept, curious about devised work, want to engage with the subject matter.

Don't see it if you don't want to support another all-white/cis cast taking on difficult subject matter in a sometimes irresponsible manner.

Ambitious, Clever, Profound, Relevant, Must see

See it if You want to be put face to face with issues dealing with women's sexuality and power.

Don't see it if Youre made uncomfortable by sexuality/conversation about sex.

Funny, Edgy, Raunchy, Thought-provoking, Relevant

See it if You are game for a fun AND serious nonsense-free, irony-free take on contemporary sexuality and representation of women.

Don't see it if You're sexually repressed or self-identify as an internet troll.

"A feminist play to end all feminist plays...A strong commentary on objectification, sex, gender roles, and the great power that is anonymity on the Internet…The only major woe was there was very little semblance of character development…But this isn’t a play about characters. It’s about social a...
