Body Awareness

Performing at Empire Stage (Mar 15 - Apr 20)

Runtime: 1 Hour 30 Minutes


"Body Awareness" was the 2009 Drama Desk Award winner for best play. As described by Nelson Pressley of The Washington Post, "Take a Vermont lesbian couple - Joyce, a high school cultural studies teacher, and Phyllis, a feminist academic - and their 21 year old son, Jared, who may have Asperger's Syndrome and who trawls the naughty stuff on the Internet. Add an extremely macho visiting artist named Frank Bonitatibus who photographs nude women and girls. Combine during a consciousness-raising "Body Awareness" week on Phyllis's progressive campus (Shirley State College). Stir Gently."
