Denim Doves by Adrienne Dawes
JANUARY 21st- FEBRUARY 13th 2016
*facebook won’t let us make the event for more than 2 weeks
“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.
