Here's how the WorkShop Theater describes its latest mainstage production, Daughters of the Sexual Revolution by Dana Leslie Goldstein:
"As the country commemorates its revolution, three women engage in their own revolutionary activities. Against the backdrop of post-Nixon America, they face ethical dilemmas, and question what it means to be faithful—to one’s values, one’s partner . . . and one's self."
Given the subject and the general high quality of the WorkShop's offerings, of course I had to see the play, but I kept putting off doing so--perhaps expecting an overly earnest and formulaic feminist tale, a didactic time capsule.
I needn't have feared. Beautifully written and performed, Daughters of the Sexual Revolution is moving, funny, and thought provoking, with richly conceived stories and characters brought vividly--and memorably-- to life.
See it before it closes--the last performance is Sunday, October 11.
