  • Description

    By Meghan Brown
    Directed by Michelle Bellaver

    In this feminist retelling of Aeschylus’ The Suppliants, fifty blood-stained brides murder their husbands on their wedding night after learning that their father signed a contract forcing them to marry for reasons of politics and property, rather than love. As Kay, Leta, Arianna, Courtney, and Philomena seek refuge, their stories form a complex tapestry of sisterhood and provide insight about the deaths of the men that stood in their way. The Pliant Girls is heartbreaking and, at times, hilarious exploration of love, sexual politics, and the power of redemption.
