JUDITH

By Katie Bender

Directed by Alex Keegan

Alex will be directing a workshop of Judith by Katie Bender with AFO at WP Theater. 

 

Dressed in drag, Judith heads to London to save her brother’s reputation. There, she finds herself in a patriarchal, politically-charged, deeply divided nation, discovering the pleasures and pitfalls of passing as a poet known around town as The Bard. Gallivanting in and out of character, Judith is a touching solo show that questions ambition, self-worth, and queer identity.
