Pussy + 6
Week 4 of Suzan-Lori Parks’ work 365 Days / 365 Plays

Week four in Suzan Lori-Parks’ 365 Plays/365 Days  series. Each play received full production and was performed on the evening corresponding to its date. With no fixed seating, these short plays were treated not just as performances but also as mediations and installations. Though in some cases, dialogue lasted no more than one or two minutes, audiences stayed in the space for as long as 60 minutes, engaging with the scenographic environment in and around the downtown warehouse space in which pussy +6 was performed.

The eye of God opens and the eye of God closes, and that entire play world happens on that day. The next day, an entirely new play world is born. – Bonnie Metzgar

Fucking A (2004)

Fucking A (2004)

Fucking A
by Suzan-Lori Parks

A darkly comic Brechtian riff on The Scarlet Letter in a modern world where Hester is an abortionist and freedom is for sale, Fucking A is equal parts social commentary, vulgarity and honesty. This modern fairy tale explores the nature of love and the depths of revenge

“Ms. Parks’ vision and voice is one of the most powerful and progressively active in the American theatre today.”
– Brian Freeland
