Manless is a feminist, female two-hander comedy; a boisterous romp simultaneously pushing the boundaries of female aggression and putting the toxicity of masculinity under a drunkenly held microscope. Manless gender-bends catcalling and focuses on the hyper-masculinity and toxicity of this kind of language. Plus, there’s a lot more tequila.
Post show, those invested in the themes explored are invited to share their impressions with the performers in the FatG bar. A content note: This show contains explicit language and references to sexual violence.
