“A thinking woman sleeps with monsters.” – Adrienne Rich
Samantha is moving up in her career. A career overshadowed by everyday misogyny and the successes of men, the fight has been… Long. Hard. Sam has had to “man up.”
After a night of uneasy dreams, Sam wakes up on an important morning to find herself transformed. In a state of shock, she must navigate career, sex, friendships, identity, and art within this whole new ball game.
A surreal and intelligent story that combines Kafka’s classic work with contemporary dialogue and stunning visual design. And a lot of 80’s pop.
“Very clever, very funny, very imaginative; a startling, wild ride.” – Playmarket
