Hillary and Soon-Yi Shop for Ties
Hillary and Soon-Yi Shop for Ties
Received the PEN Center USA West Playwriting Award!
By Michelle Carter.

Cast: 2w. "Remember the satire? Well it's back, and incredibly potent in Hillary and Soon-Yi Shop for Ties." (Contra Costa Times) This Garland Award and PEN USA West Award-winning play throws 19 scenes and six songs at two women about whom we've so often wondered, "What was she thinking?" In a kaleidoscopic vaudeville, Hillary Clinton and Soon-Yi Previn Allen shop for ties, take batting practive, play bingo and strut a catwalk, among other unlikely collisions. In Act Two, the play veers into an underworld of female icons— Demeter and Persephone, Marilyn Monroe and the Virgin Mary among them— finally catapulting our heroines back into their own histories to moments of unjaundiced possibility. "It's a last wave at the train wreck of politics and squalor, public image and the smashed art of leading private lives… Sharp, funny satire filled with choice, chewy bits." (San Francisco Chronicle) "A dizzyingly satisfying entertainment." (Citysearch) "The show moved like a raging river… Delightfully sharp, sophisticated, and unrelentingly funny." (Contra Costa Times) Bare stage w/ props. Approximate Running Time: 1 hour, 50 minutes.
