A sold-out critical hit Off Broadway and a big winner at this year's Hollywood Fringe Festival, the raucous comedy Women cleverly retells the beloved story of Louisa May Alcott's March girls as if it were an episode of Lena Dunham's HBO show Girls, complete with the ready-made hashtag #bethdies. And it isn't much of a stretch to imagine Jo, Amy, Beth and Meg existing in both worlds, especially in this fast-paced and keenly-observed series of sketches. Written by Chiara Atik, the show earned a New York Times critics' pick and scored several awards at the 2014 Hollywood Fringe Fest, including Top of the Fringe and Best Comedy. Learn More
Quotes & Highlights
“Shem Bitterman’s Sensitive Skin a creepy-sexy chamber piece about ambition of all sorts in late ‘90s New York, features a bizarre love triangle as sleek and inviting as the New Order dance classic.” —Los Angeles_ Times_
“Shem Bitterman’s new drama, Sensitive Skin_, is a kind of R-rated fable dissecting the psychology of a young woman torn between two men and her camera. Gives a gutsy and unnerving performance that reverberates long after the lights go out.” —_L.A._ Weekly_
“In Shem Bittermen’s darkly comic meditation on jealousy and deceit, blood is thinner than water and nothing is more porous than the shifting waters of loyalty…in this provocative tale of the used and the users.” —Backstage West
What happens when jealousy, family competition and love all get thrown into a boiling pot, when obligations and emotions are pushed to the edge? In Shem Bitterman’s harrowing tale, Sensitive Skin, what starts as a challenge between brothers ends in a game of sex and betrayal and threatens to destroy everyone involved. Elephant Stageworks proudly presents the World Premiere of Sensitive Skin by LADCC award winner, Shem Bitterman and directed by David Fofi.
