“BRATTY, INSOLENT AND WISE, WHORE IS A MASH UP OF JOHN HUGHES, JEAN GENET, AND JEM AND THE HOLOGRAMS.”

– Stephen Karam (Author of Speech & Debate and The Humans)

Set against a backdrop of small-town gossip amplified by social media, limitless shame, and the hell-fire of the confession booth, WHORE: A Kid’s Play is a darkly funny account of the pressures to be both normal and exceptional in a world hostile to misfit girls and queer boys, when nothing is quite so momentous as friendship, nor so utterly monstrous as ourselves.

Making their way through an obstacle course of double-standards, internalized sexism, and impossible beauty regimes, the three discover that what they need in life is an accomplice.

JOY DONZE: 13 & Not Pregnant

Written & Performed by JOY DONZE*
Directed by MIA CAPOTORTO SOMMESE

A ONE-WOMAN SHOW THAT IS “HILARIOUSLY POIGNANT AND SHOCKINGLY HONEST”

– Karen Ludwig

With 90’s musical dance tantrums, heartbreaking journal entries, and the severing of dolls heads, 13 & Not Pregnant presents the aggressively hormonal writings of a Midwestern US, nineties, pre-teen as she navigates her erratically evolving girlhood.

The entire show is verbatim entries from Joy Donze‘s 6th grade journal, massaged and spliced & diced in the rehearsal room with Director Mia Capotorto Sommese. The show is developed to be first and foremost universally entertaining. Beyond that, Joy Donze explains, “I wanted go back and explore this crucial pivotal time we all go through; Puberty. When we search within our tormenting selves and dare to ask….who am I?”
