"You know what your problem is? You don’t understand your place in the world. You think if you dress like a toad and use dry shampoo 5 days a week that you’ll somehow earn some equality rights and get out of using your boobs for what they’re meant for - letting babies ogle them and men suck them."
Join American Berserk Theatre for their most vibrant and bloody foray yet in the world premiere of their brand new pop horror revenge comedy, Killer Girls.
When Rita, Darlene, Mallory, Issa, and Summer, five female students from John Wilkes Booth University (JWBU or "joo-boo" for short) in #yesallmen, Texas, find out their humble Fruit Ninja Team has been invited to a big tournament in #grabherbythepussy, Florida, they have no idea their already challenging daily life in a world of toxic masculinity is about to go into overdrive, forcing them to do the unthinkable. Payback's a bitch.
Featuring choreography by Jordan Gradel Williams, blood & gore FX by Edwin Wise of Wise Blood, and an incredible 9-person ensemble cast of Austin's best led by critically-acclaimed "Best of Austin" Writer/Director Kaci Beeler, Killer Girls is one wild and cathartic ride you won't want to miss.
Killer Girls is the third fully scripted theatrical production of American Berserk Theatre, whose “brilliantly performed” 2016 production Subject to Control and 2017 production For Time and Eternity were both warmly received by the Austin Chronicle. It’s the passion project of playwright and director Kaci Beeler, brought to life using a unique creation process drawing on the company's skills in improvisation, sketch comedy, and intuitive storytelling.
The play will be performed at the newly renovated Hideout Studios space (2505 E 6th St #3c, Austin, TX 78702) Thursday-Sunday at 8pm for 3 weekends: May 10th through May 27th, with a preview performance at 8pm on Wednesday, May 9th. $20 online, $25 at the door.
