La MaMa presents Vagina Town
By MUR

As the world of mansplaining, manspreading, and manterrupting takes over New York, seven women form a small town of misfits upstate. For their annual town meeting, they emerge singing of their unique and sometimes tragic tales of abuse and mistreatment.
This year, the town faces losing their land to a rich, real estate-politician named Doug who wants to turn Vagina Town into a strip mall.

About Experiments Play Reading Series

For the 2018-19 season, Experiments looks to the past while seeking out new emerging playwrights of all backgrounds.  Experiments: 19 “Class Acts” will present works in progress inspired by classical texts. Each month, we will select an up-and-coming playwright who has re-imagined Shakespeare, a Greek tragedy or any number of classical texts to create a new, vibrant work that speaks to us today.
