Alley Theatre presents Alley All New Festival: Cinched and Strapped
The Alley All New Festival provides playwrights the resources needed to grow their work. The festival also offers audiences a first look at plays that may appear in full productions at the Alley, as well as at theatres around the country.
Corsets become armor, the sewer is salvation, lives are gambled on parlor games and sacrificed in war. From the posh guests of a 19th century dinner party in Cinched to the hardened warriors of a dystopic future in Strapped, these paired plays explore gender and rebellion by playfully examining the past and boldly imagining the future.
A thrilling new voice in the American theatre, Selina Fillinger questions what makes a man, what makes a woman, and who will make the rules in a fast-approaching new world.
