FIGHTING WORDS FESTIVAL 2018
May 19-20, 2018
The first annual Fighting Words Festival showcases three developing scripts via readings, all reflecting how women define themselves and their places in their worlds – including the English countryside, medieval Scotland and the “final frontier.”
THE LADY DEMANDS SATISFACTION
When a young maiden learns she must defend her inheritance in a duel, she struggles with a conniving suitor, a servant girl posing as a Prussian fencing master who doesn’t speak English, and her renowned aunt – the finest blade anywhere – to save her house and lands.
Babes With Blades Theatre Company brings you their biennial production of BWBTC Shakespeare: productions which solely feature actors who identify as female, trans, and gender-nonconforming, providing the opportunity for audiences to perceive these classic stories through a new lens.
Now, they bring their take on the Bard’s classic tale of jealousy and manipulation.
