NATURAL NOVICE, WRITTEN AND PERFORMED BY SIOBHAN O'LOUGHLIN
"Natural Novice" is a comic exploration of what it means to move from a commune to New York City as a woman who doesn't shave, well, any part of her body. It also includes interviews from other women who have chosen completely different paths for their body hair. Overall, this play is a silly self-analysis of the implications of a woman not shaving her armpits, but also a feminist critique of the social structures of aesthetic, and how a woman defines herself, no matter what she looks like.
