Babes With Blades: Run 1

Our first full run!

Like the showcase, the show again featured scenes composed by the cast. Each vignette was woven into the creation story of Durga, an Indian warrior goddess brought into being by male gods in their hour of need. A mighty warrior, she quickly vanquished all their enemies and in doing so, put herself out of a job.
