From the show:
Ready to see women kick ass?
In “The Regime is Female”, a new play written by Sarah Elizabeth Grace and directed by Andi Villa Stover, the year is 2028 and America is a New Country. It’s been two years since the American dictatorship was overthrown and over half of American males died due to the “XY” virus. River Flynn (Sarah Elizabeth Grace) is a Specialist: the executioner for any person caught performing a white supremacist or patriarchal act. When she’s not killing with her bare hands, River Flynn fills her time indoctrinating her ex-Congressman father (Don Carter, curtesy of Actor’s Equity Association), training her hungry young non-binary assistant (Meaghan J. Johnson), and zoning out to old anti-establishment music. But when a cis man (Ryan Desaulniers) is introduced as her new assistant, River starts to question her role, her country, and her humanity.
This November, "The Regime is Female" will be running for three weeks at the Tank's intimate 56-seat theater in New York City. Audiences will feel right in the thick of it as they're wowed by the stunts and moved by the story. Yes, the actors are performing live action stunts on stage! It's time to see women and non-binary people in power.
