WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
A young woman assassin fights to overthrow an oppressive Russian regime in this first ever New York revival of Oscar Wilde's outlandish, acid-tongued first play, which feels right at home in our current times of ever-polarizing politics, distrust of government, and global human rights violations. With an all-male cast lead by performance artist Chris Tyler in the title role, Femme Fatale Theater draws inspiration from contemporary demands for queer rights in Russia and around the world as it reinvigorates this comedy of love, rebellion, and political idealism.
