"The overarching theme of the season is 'Who Run the World: Womyn,' with a focus on bringing women’s stories to the stage.
The season will kick off in January with Steph Del Rosso’s play Fill Fill Fill Fill Fill Fill Fill, in which a woman, reeling from a breakup, attempts to fill holes all over her body—from acupuncture to threesomes. The piece, originally developed in the Soho Rep Writer/Director Lab, will be directed by Marina McClure. Performances run January 22–February 25, 2018, in the Siggy space (the Flea’s new below-ground theatre).
In March, The Flea will present the Q Brothers Collective’s hip-hop interpretation of Aristophanes’ Lysistrata. Titled ms. Estrada and set on a college campus, the show is billed by the theatre as “the Girl Anthem of 2018.” The world premiere will run March 22–April 22 in the Sam Theatre (a large black-box space) with direction by Michelle Tattenbaum."
