"Rules of the Playground" -- March 22 to 31, 2019"The Rules of the Playground:
An Evening of Works by Carolyn Gage"

Produced by Queen Bee Production

Directed by Deb Lemire

Rules of the Playground presents six of Carolyn Gage’s hardest-hitting plays — daring, heartbreaking, principled, bitter and often very funny — exploring cultural norms, expectations and gender roles.

Even though these plays were written in the last several decades, some as early as 1987, the subject matter is still relevant. Given today’s rising, global fundamentalism, the #MeToo movement, and the ever-present threat to women’s reproductive autonomy, Gage’s plays inform the important conversations we are having right now.

Plays being presented are: The Gage and Mr. Comstock, A Labor Play, The Clarity of Pizza, Black Eye: A Knockout in Nine Minutes, The Rules of the Playground and At Sea. CLICK HERE to read summaries of these short plays.

Audience advisory: This production is rated PG-13 due to references to sex, violence, mild drug use, and language.

Rules of the Playground is produced and presented by Queen Bee Productions through special arrangement with playwright Carolyn Gage.
