Fefu and her Friends

by Maria Irene Fornes

directed by Jillian Johnson

Fefu and her Friends 

Fefu and her friends is an intelligent, dynamic and unsettling exploration of feminism, social expectation and individual empowerment. Tin lily has set the majority of the play in the round and then splits, according to Fornes’ alternative staging, the middle of the play into four scenes in four separate spaces occurring at the same time. The audience is an activated voyeur in the events of play. As the play begins in 1935, eight women arrive to rehearse for an educational fundraiser, but the events of the day digress and the play becomes a character study of women on the verge of either self awareness or martyrdom. Tin Lily is excited to present Fornes’s unique and challenging experience.
