CONSEQUENCES - Mo

Author Rae Binstock
Brooklyn, New York

PLAY DESCRIPTION

A rowdy group of American women come together across time, space and culture to ask the political question of today: “what DO women want?”

MONOLOGUE DESCRIPTION

Time: Contemporary                                

Situation: Mo is at a party where all the other guests are women of different races, ages, and religions, from throughout American history. They are discussing a female presidential candidate (who may or may not be Hillary Clinton) and why they do or don't want her to win.

Subject Matter: American History, Politics, Feminism, Intersectionality, Race, Gender, Violence, Identity, Women, Hillary Clinton 

Note from Playwright: Mo is a butch lesbian from 1980s New York, snarky and wry, hardened by rough times and full of revolutionary fire. Also, a white woman who wants to be an ally so badly she often ends up shouting down or misrepresenting the actual people she's trying to support. She is explaining why she would not want a female candidate (very similar to Hillary Clinton) as president. This is her main beef with the notion.
