Written by Lambda Literary Fellow Romana Soutus, Martyrs is a play that examines the ways that the body becomes a battleground.
Cat and Kitten’s slumber party has been going on for quite a while. Cat wants to be lifted and Kitten wants to be loved. Tensions rise as Cat and Kitten negotiate restraint versus indulgence, sensuality versus innocence. Their relationship erupts as they uncover how their desires express who they are while also reckoning with how they ruin them. Cat and Kitten pull back the curtain and let you listen to the midnight whispers between girls and their darkness kept secret. Developed by an all female team, Martyrs is a fall down the rabbit hole of shame, femininity, and food in a world where the body is a battleground and sisterhood offers shelter.
