She's With Me

A Feminist Survival Guide to Seattle

That’swhatshesaid

When: February 4 – February 7, 8PM
Where: Gay City Health Project, 517 E Pike St
Cost: $15-20; buy tickets here

A one-person performance using only female dialogue from the most-produced plays in America, That’swhatshesaid is a brutal theatrical exercise in isolation. When a female character is left alone with no male protagonists to support, her behaviors gain both chaos and clarity, resulting in a concentrated dose of the modern theater’s intended role for women. Created and performed by Erin Pike.

Press:

“A very illuminating portrait of the state of women onstage in modern theater… a fascinating exercise in deconstructing a portrait of today’s theater scene… structured and executed in very clever ways. It goes from being over the top funny to more than a little uncomfortable. Pike has great comic timing and playwright Meaker has constructed this compilation artfully.” – Twin Cities Daily Planet

“Erin Pike is a ferocious feminist killjoy in this hurricane strength indictment of the weak roles available to women on today’s mainstream stage. A physically demanding and tour de force solo performance.” – Portland Theatre Scene

About sheswithmeseattle

She's With Me is the brain child of three feminists who got tired of emailing each other every time they caught wind of a womanist event, so they created a separate space to house their feminist calendar. The benefits would be twofold: fewer emails cluttering up their inboxes, and more people learning about Seattle's growing feminist community. She's With Me aims to be a feminist hub, where all the goings on of different organizations are collected in one place. Our plans for the site include reviews/write-ups of events, interviews with local feminist activists, news updates, and essays, poetry, and art by feminists. The Fourth Wave of Feminism is here, and She's With Me will be the feminist scrap book documenting our herstory as it unfolds.
