How ___ Made Me A Better Feminist is an evening of brand new ten minute plays exploring the opportunities for female empowerment found in popular culture and our day to day lives. By asking our collaborating playwrights to fill in the blank with their chosen words we'll find out how cheerleading, cake, the subway, OKCupid, being a manny, and Barbra Streisand made us better feminists - but not before we get you good and liquored up with some Feminist Punch!
It's 1941 and Alice "Al" Huffman comes from the potato fields of Long Island with her beau, her best girlfriend and her girlfriend's beau to make it on the Broadway stage only to find she has no talent. She meets Max, a former producer, talent manager and possible con man who introduces her to the glamorous, perpetually on the brink of stardom night club singer, Juliana. Juliana's voice sounds to Al like "warm milk slipping down the whole of my body."
Al is increasingly drawn into a secret gay underworld of men who wear dresses and women who smoke cigars, while her childhood friends continue in their "normal" lives. Al glides easily between the two worlds until these worlds begin to collide.
Juliana is the first in a series of novels about the same characters living through forthcoming decades of LGBT history.
