Inspired by true events, this play tackles society's obsession with beauty in a compelling yet deeply funny way. A spa owner puts up a billboard to advertise his business. The billboard happens to feature a gorgeous model labeled like a side of beef, with arrows pointing out her "problems" and suggesting cosmetic "solutions" his spa can provide. The outraged community boycotts the spa, resulting in its removal. Written by Mia McCullough, Impenetrable stimulates debate about the responsibility of advertising and the ways in which our youth- and beauty-obsessed culture affects our own self image. After each performance, which is making its West Coast premiere, stick around for a moderated "Celebrate Women" chat about the issues raised in the play. Learn More
