Based on the film Town Bloody Hall by Chris Hegedus & D.A. Pennebaker
An artful reimagining of the classic 1971 documentary Town Bloody Hall, which captured a raucous debate between author Norman Mailer and leading feminists like Jill Johnston and Germaine Greer (played by Maura Tierney). The debate may have taken place more than 45 years ago, but its themes remain relevant.
Directed by Elizabeth LeCompte, co-founder of acclaimed experimental theatre troupe The Wooster Group, the play combines live performance of real-life dialogue from the debate with video footage from documentary, both inhabiting the original film and derailing it.
“Audaciously clever and technically dazzling” The Hollywood Reporter
