Written by Adrienne Dawes
Devised in collaboration with the Salvage Vanguard Theater company
“You are safe here, Sister.” Inside the compound walls, five fertile sister-wives enjoy many freedoms. Free sleep. Free Welches grape. Free laughter. Free denims of every length. Set in a dystopian future (which feels a lot like the mid 1990s), Denim Doves is a collaboratively devised feminist farce that explores themes of women in subjugation and the hilarious consequences of a rigid dick-tatorship.
