... an African-American lesbian performance artist interviews a porn star for her latest documentary theater piece on social injustice and winds up questioning the exploitative nature of her own work.
As expectations are challenged and the interview turns increasingly personal, "reality based" theatre icon Sarah finds herself asking a new set of questions.
Playwright Victoria Stewart, a recipient of the Helen Merrill Award for emerging playwrights, explores race, sex, and ethics in this entertaining play that the Boston Globe called a "riveting, multi-layered and deeply intelligent work."
Director Lou Jacob (Sam Shepard's The God of Hell with Tim Roth, Randy Quaid, J. Smith-Cameron) returns to Urban Stages after drama-desk nominated Coyote on a Fence.
Live Girls was first produced by the Wellfleet Harbor Theater in Massachusetts, 2003
