ABOUT THE SHOW

“My reason tells me now that ‘tis as common
To err in frailty as to be a woman.” (IV.iii)

‘Tis Pity She’s a Whore in the Loeb Ex seeks to explore gender, language, and the body: how the three are mapped onto each other to create violence and to blur the lines between public and private, harming female-bodied and femme-expressing individuals’ autonomy and safety.

For this reason, we are casting actors who identify as women, transgender by any definition, genderqueer, non-binary, non-conforming, and any person with a gender identity or expression that has been associated with femininity at any stage in their life. Actors wishing to audition are encouraged to contact Eliza (they/them/theirs) and/or Madi (she/her/hers) with any questions they may have about this or any other aspect of the project.

Run time: 80 minutes, no intermission.
