Of the woman came the beginning of sin and through her we all die

a world premiere by Lily Houghton

directed by Kylie M. Brown

co-produced with Leigh Honigman

October 3-26, 2019


Normal Ave and Leigh Honigman present the world premiere production of of the woman came the beginning of sin and through her we all die, a dynamic new play by Lily Houghton about the dangers of commercializing millennial femininity. The play follows Bluebell, Sweet Pea, Pumpkin and Bleeding Heart, four femmes bound together by their workplace, a windowless basement occupied by Free People. Allegiances are formed and spells are cast in this hilarious, poignant and topical take on how we navigate femininity and expression in a political and economic climate that are constantly at odds with each other.
