✊ For the #Resistance…

White Feminist

February 3-9
Duderstadt Center Video Studio

Gender and privilege collide in this scathing comedy that will grab you by the pussy hat and challenge our understanding of activism. As the host of a morning talk show, “Becky’s Time,” Lee Minora skewers and dissects the failings of non-intersectional feminism and the dangers of white women’s tears, blending the #MeToo movement, liberal guilt, and fake celebrity apologies into a concoction that is absurdly hilarious and painfully true. Trust us — this show will sell out, so you’ll want to make sure you get tickets before they do.
