Raw Sugar and Theatre Unbound are teaming up to create brand new comedic works by Women, Trans, Femme Artists. These new works challenge audiences to rethink their own perspectives on gender, sexuality, privilege, and community through comedy. We believe that feminist comedy is essential to building a community of artists and audiences committed to gender equity. 


Production dates:  April 6th - 15th, 2018 at Crane Studio, 2303 Kennedy St NE #120, Minneapolis, MN 55413

Sex, War, and Syphilis by Katherine Glover, directed by Morgan Holmes

Synopsis
A historical comedy about government efforts during World War I to protect soldiers from syphilis by policing young women's sexuality. It's 1917 and the once sleepy town of Des Moines has been inundated with soldiers-in-training. Seventeen-year-old Hazel is entranced by these young men in uniform, and her best friend Florence doesn't like it one bit. Meanwhile in Washington D.C., the war department has launched a new agency dedicated solely to protecting soldiers from syphilis -- and from girls like Hazel.
