Choreographing a Rape Scene to go into a Feminist Play is a darkly hilarious show about the cannibalistic nature of storytelling and the limits that artists test on the road to authenticity.
Tina is a writer/director who prefers to use her performers’ private lives as artistic fodder. For her new play, she's chosen to pick at the wounds of actors Bryn and Bill. However, she isn't satisfied with Bryn's journal entries about the way she falls. And why does Bill's diary have a distinct similarity to that of Anne Frank? Only Gordon, a kind-hearted fight choreographer can hold the process together amidst deceit and hula hooping.
What starts as a behind-the-scenes comedy where the only thing growing is tension, climaxes into chaos as the artists are made to face their darkest emotions.
