GW’s Generic Theater Company preformed “Rapture, Blister, Burn” over the weekend. Sophomore Jeremy Neff directed the show, which follows three generations of woman.
Ranging from 50 to 21-years-old, the women share their views on different aspects of the feminist movement and how to use it to make their lives better. “It was excellent, funny and very well written,” said freshmen Frank Fritz who attended the show. “The best part was that I got to learn about feminism and woman’s rights.”
The audience was entertained by the characters’ daily lives as they tried to figure out how to balance the desire to have both a family and a career. This comedic show takes a new spin on how woman and men try to live their lives and be happy.
Senior Matt Nickley was the only male in the cast and enjoyed the opportunity to act with dedicated and empowered actresses. “It was a lot of fun and even very intimidating,” said Nickley. “We also had a great director who had a dynamic way of making it all come to life.”
