At the Young Women’s Empowerment Forum, Karina, the youngest female partner in a prestigious law firm, is poised to impart her wisdom to the hordes of Gen Z women who regard her as a role model in a male-dominated industry. Unexpectedly, Karina is thrust into a Zoom breakout room with Sara, her former intern, whose experiences throw into question Karina’s #girlboss sloganeering… #WomenSupportingWomen maps the vast expanse of greys behind the glib hashtag of solidarity, and unpacks the performances expected of women as leaders in the workplace — and as victims in the courtroom. The play also explores the incongruities of virtual identities in our post-pandemic world, where we are forced to project our public selves while in our most private spaces.
The venue is fully wheelchair accessible. Assistance dogs are welcome to this event. There are arrangements for people hard of hearing.
