Age of Arousal
By Linda Griffiths
September 27th at 7:00 pm (virtual)
The entire original Austin Playhouse cast from our 2009 production will reunite for a one-night-only live reading.
In Age of Arousal, Griffiths’ created a fantasy-filled re-working of George Gissing’s 19th-century novel, The Odd Women. In late 19th century England, a population imbalance had almost twice as many women as men running around London. This meant that many women would never find husbands, would never be paired; they would be odd.
Fusing the political battle of the 19th-century suffragists with more personal struggles of sexual and gender identity, Age of Arousal creates a wholly unique world to explore love, desire, and the cost and promise of equality.
*Age of Arousal contains mature themes and frank sexual discussions that would make Jane Austen blush.
A portion of ticket sales will benefit the League of Women Voters.
