Primary Lineup –Play (Women’s Themes, Physical Theatre, History)

Show Description 

HIStory calls them “Comfort Women”. HERstory says they were “Kumfert Women”. Comfort is meant to be given, not stolen. We’re going to create a ruckus. We will tell terrible truths with abundant doses of hilarity. We will ask unkumfertable questions and discover unkumfertable answers. We will reclaim the word comfort.

Producer Biography

Performance Gallery is a Cincinnati-based collaborative of theatre artists existing to produce and promote challenging works of theatre. We are often outlandish, sometimes profound and strive to be unpredictable. Founded in 2002, we have produced a varying amount of works per year in a variety of spaces, including original plays, some revamped classics and fifteen widely different, original offerings at the Cincinnati Fringe Festival. We are delighted to be back!
