Where Women Go

Tina Howe

Where Women Go is a series of three short one-acts for a diverse cast of women of various ages. Tina Howe's eccentric plays explore the humor and absurdity of women's daily lives as they visit the dermatologist, eat at Subway and go shopping. To the Dermatologist (7f, 1m voice, Comedy) - It's 2021 at Your Reflections Dermatology office, and Zilla learns that the growth on her legs is lichen planus, a type of algae that develops into something more akin to spices and vegetables. One year later, the dermatology office, now transformed into "Spicy Zilla's Café," is selling Zilla's leg spices by the bottle. To the Dermatologist explores the relationship between patients, their partners, health care staff and diagnosis. To Subway (5f, Comedy) - Hannah, a regular at her local Subway sandwich shop, brings her reluctant friend Clara to Subway for the first time. Eager employees Pudding and Sal greet them enthusiastically, but things go awry when actress Alida Valli enters, playing the zither. Finally, Clara settles on her order: a combo of Black Forest eel, rotisserie-style canary and raw eagle legs with a sprinkling of mule ears on the side. Shopping (8f, 2m, Comedy) - At Ed Singh's clothing stand on the Upper West Side in 2022 at the height of the COVID pandemic, seven women shop and fight over gloves, earmuffs and other winter wear. Suddenly, a man crashes into the shop wearing a parachute, and everyone finds themselves in heaven.
