The Catastrophic Theatre presents Fefu and Her Friends
Fefu and Her Friends by Maria-Irene Fornes is a signature work of feminist theatre by a giant of the avant-garde. Set in the 1930s, a group of eight women gather at the country home of their brilliant and eccentric friend, Fefu. As multiple conflicts unfold between the old friends, the women struggle to define who they are and what it means to be a woman in a patriarchal society.
Though written in the 1970s, Fefu and her Friends raises questions and anxieties around gender and identity that endure today. The play features an all- female cast of Houston’s most powerful actors.
