A. E. Hotchner Studio Theatre
6445 Forsyth Blvd., St. Louis, MO 63105

By Bryna Turner

Directed by Annamaria Pileggi

Turner describes her play as “Inspired by the real letters between Mary Woolley and Jeannette Marks spanning from 1899 to 1937. This is an excavation of queer history, a history that has been buried and hidden and kept from us. It’s also a queering of history, a look at past events through a contemporary gaze.” Time Out asserts that “With a light hand and welcome irreverence, Turner neatly dispenses with two hoary shibboleths: that history is perforce dry, and feminists unfunny.”
