Enter a world in which a man earns 2/3rds of what a woman earns.  
Where men are routinely put on a pedestal and have their rights limited.
Where men have to work twice as hard to be considered half as good. 
Where women wear comfortable shoes.

Madelyn Reiter (Lisa Stran, "Egg Whites & Miracles", "A Midsummer Night's Dream") is a divorced British journalist who is called to join her happily married college friend Alyx Fizzle (Julie Schlesinger, "War in Pieces", "Darknight Gallery") console her friend, Rebekah (Miki Byrne, "I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change"), in the aftermath of a troubled breakup.  As the three women drink and discuss all topics from hope to war to love to religion, while being patiently served by their waitron Jans (Steve Carter Ruppel), we are given a fascinating look into the world if men were not granted dominance through their skills as hunter/gatherers.


A 2012 world premiere play from Vincent Truman ("The Observatory", "Remote", "The Tearful Assassin", "Suspicious Clowns"), painstakingly written over three years of research and development.
