45 Plays for America’s First Ladies

45 Plays for America’s First Ladies

Show Information

45 Plays for America’s First Ladies is a companion piece to the past Neo-Futurist production 43 Plays for 43 Presidents [originally produced in 2004, and remounted in 2012 as 44 Plays for 44 Presidents and re-published as 45 Plays for 45 Presidents in 2019]. Focusing this time on the women who served in the role of First Lady, this play follows an identical format as its predecessor, with a chronological series of 1-5 minute plays that – in typical Neo style – adopt a variety of shapes, tones, and theatrical conventions.

Instead of simply reciting biographies, however, this project uses the “honorary” office of First Lady as a lens to examine the roles that not only women but other marginalized individuals have played in the development of America. The story that emerges from telling all these stories at once shows how often people have gone unrecognized and unrewarded – and how vital their contribution have been.

For more information and to purchase tickets starting at $15, visit neofuturists.org. Live-streamed performances with an audience participation component will run Oct. 8, 9 and 11, with a full digital recording available through Nov. 2, 2020.
