Women Laughing Alone With Salad
by Sheila Callaghan
at Theater Wit
Theater Wit presents a fierce, funny, feminist play about the maniacal gauntlet of gender relations and the relentless pursuit of insane ideals. Trapped on a treadmill of dysfunctional relationships, warped body image, and ludicrous pornography, our heroines try to carve their way through this suffocating, tangled mess. But every act of lashing out, turns and lashes back, tying them tighter to their absurd predicament. With pointed jabs and razor wit, WOMEN LAUGHING ALONE WITH SALAD disembowels the cosmetic myth of pre-packaged feminine empowerment. Shedding this false skin, we find that the real truth and power of womanhood is everything but pretty.
Dangerous, fierce and funny, Women Laughing Alone with Salad bursts out of the bounds of internet meme-dom and onto the stage in a four person comic tour-de-force about friendship, salad, sex, bodies, yoga, salad, men, envy, women, pharmaceuticals, diets, salad and uppers and salad. A satire about how we live with ourselves. Or, possibly, how we can't.
