Inspired by Dickens' A Tale of Two Cities, Geetha Reddy's new play tells the story of two women--a Latina domestic worker and a young South Asian doctor--separated by class, race, and the unspoken rules of modern womanhood. See what happens when these two women strive to balance their responsibilities to their children, to themselves, and to each other.
The “unspoken rules of modern womanhood” play out between a Latina domestic worker and a young South Asian doctor, in local playwright Geetha Reddy’s new play. The playwright re-imagines Dickens’ “A Tale of Two Cities,” setting it in our own fraught contemporary milieu instead of the French Revolution and tells the tale from the perspective of two female characters. The joint Shotgun/TheatreFirst production is directed by Katja Rivera.
