Corsets become armor, the sewer is salvation, lives are gambled on parlor games and sacrificed in war. From the posh guests of a 19th century dinner party in Cinched to the hardened warriors of a dystopic future in Strapped, these paired plays explore gender and rebellion by playfully examining the past and boldly imagining the future. A thrilling new voice in the American theatre, Fillinger questions what makes a man, what makes a woman, and who will make the rules in a fast-approaching new world.
