Polly Clamorous Herstory



This bold and bodacious cabaret chronicles the tales of some of the most enigmatic and misunderstood women throughout history. Get up close and personal as they name, shame and reclaim their stories in the books that have notoriously begrudged them of any space. Herstory brings their stories together through song, movement and spoken word, using their brief time on stage to transcend the edicts of history which too often casts them as mad women, alabaster saints and serviceable whores. These women are back to spark controversy and puncture myths.
