In Maria Irene Fornes' groundbreaking 1977 environmental drama, Fefu and Her Friends, the allegorical fuses with reality. Broken up into three parts, one of which has the audience touring four different rooms in no particular order, the play follows eight women through one day in 1935. The characters are confident and intelligent women but underneath they struggle with a dangerous force intent on disabling them. Fefu and Her Friends asks us to recognize the threat of self-doubt and self-loathing that even the most independent of women has to reckon with, strictly because of her gender. Appropriate for ages 12 and up.
