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.
“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
