Fefu and Her Friends
Presented by Hollyhock House
A J.U.S.T. Toys Production in association with Circle X Theatre Co.
About the Play: A Frank Lloyd Wright house, eight women, one bunny and a gun. Fefu and Her FriendsAbout the Play: On a seemingly ordinary day, a group of women gather to plan a philanthropic fundraiser. As the evening unwinds, the world dips into the surreal and their secrets, fears, and frustrations with society and each other come to light. Featuring an international cast of women, Fornés’ 1977 play explores how women across the world are subtly pressured to conform to an ideal of meekness and femininity.
About the Playwright: María Irene Fornés is an avant-garde Cuban-American playwright and LGBTQ activist. An icon of the off-Broadway movement in the 1960’s and 70’s, her work has inspired generations of playwrights. She was a Pulitzer Prize finalist for her play What of the Night? and a pioneer of immersive theatre.
About the Site: The Hollyhock House was commisioned by Aline Barnsdall and designed architect Frank Lloyd Wright in 1919-1921. Originally intended as part of a feminist-theatre complex, the project stalled after the house was finished. Barnsdall gifted the house to the City of Los Angeles in 1927. The Hollyhock House underwent extensive renovations and re-opened to the public in 2014. Fefu and Her Friends will be the first-ever theatre performance at the house, finally making Aline Barnsdall’s vision a reality.
