BLOOMER GIRLS

Script Sample

Full Script Available on New Play Exchange

Bloomer Girls is a fictional account of real life women in the late 1800s who travelled the United States playing sports and looking for adventure. A ragtag women's team headed by a female manager travels the West playing local teams. Half vaudevillian, but trying to prove their true athleticism and strength as women, they continue to try and overcome stereotypes. The Wild West holds hope for these women that they can redefine who they are without raising too many eyebrows.

Juxtaposed with the 1800s team, modern college softball players face similar struggles as they attempt to find room in a sport that divides them from men and still limits their options at the top of the game.

Script available on New Play Exchange

Based on Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s "The Yellow Wallpaper," The Paper Hangers takes a modern look at Me’s struggle to deal with postpartum depression when society, particularly her mother and husband, expect a new mother to embrace motherhood and domesticity.
