May West’s Sex | Play Your Part Seattle
We’re partnering with Play Your Part Seattle for their upcoming production of Mae West’s Sex, a play with music that explores the lives of sex workers in the 1920s.
Originally shut down for obscenity after its successful 1926 Broadway run, The New York Times called Sex a “crude and inept play,” as it pushed passed the boundaries of Broadway by shedding light on the life of a sex worker.
Following the story of a particularly successful lady of the night (originally played by Mae West), this daring drama explores the Canadian red light district through a uniquely feminine lens, where sex workers navigate how to move up in a world dominated by men.
The subject matter is obviously near and dear to our hearts. We’re thrilled to be working with Play Your Part Seattle to help them bring sex workers’ voices to the forefront of these stories.
Don’t miss this timely virtual production broadcasting live December 4 – 19, 2020.
