Emerson Stage

Fefu and Her Friends

By María Irene Fornés
Directed by Maureen Shea

It’s spring in New England in 1935 when Fefu invites seven of her closest female friends to her home to rehearse for a politically subversive presentation for a charity. In an absurdist, non-traditional, non-narrative format, Fefu and her friends explore what they mean to each other, their relationships to the men who control their lives, and how power and control are simultaneously desired and relinquished. María Irene Fornés possesses one of the loudest and clearest voices of the feminist playwriting movement.
