The Pussy Grabber Plays – Thursday, August 27, 2020
Proud Mary Theatre Company is supporting our sisters in the #MeToo movement with our virtual production and South Carolina premiere of The Pussy Grabber Plays (Stories Inspired by the Women Who Came Forward), a fundraiser for Planned Parenthood of South Carolina with streaming beginning August 27 just as the Donald Trump accepts the GOP nomination for president.
The Pussy Grabber Plays is a series of eight short plays created by some of the most highly acclaimed women writing for theater today. Based on interviews with seven of the women who have spoken out, the plays offer insights into each woman’s life, her decision to stand up, and the fallout she’s faced. Laced with humor, fear, heartbreak and anger, The Pussy Grabber Plays is political theater at its best: telling the untold stories about women who have risked everything to speak truth to power.
Tickets for The Pussy Grabber Plays go on sale Monday, August 17. The Pussy Grabber Plays will stream all weekend Thursday, August 27 @ 8 pm -Sunday, August 30 @ midnight. Visit proudmarytheatre.com for more details.
