Why See Angry, Raucous and Shamelessly Gorgeous?
Past and Present Collides In Pearl Cleage's Latest Work
Atlanta's world renowned company Alliance Theatre continues its groundbreaking 2018/19 season with the world premiere of African American playwright Pearl Cleage's 'Angry, Raucous and Shamelessly Gorgeous'. The brand new work from the celebrated feminist writer boldly explores the current political landscape and women's ever evolving place within it, posing questions about how far we've come and at what cost.
The bonds of friendship are tested when two former activists, most prolific during the Second Wave of feminism during the 1970s, find the world a very different place to the one they shaped decades ago. In an attempt to find a reliable candidate they can both back in an upcoming congressional race, the pair come face to face with a culture of women tearing other women down. Yet perhaps the duo can bring age old wisdom to the fore, reigniting the sisterhood of their past.
