About What Every Girl Should Know

Forum Theatre's newest plays embrace the idea that women are more than objects of lust and beauty. With WHAT EVERY GIRL SHOULD KNOW and Dry Land, audiences can dive into two fierce, bold plays that talk unflinchingly about women's bodies, women's rights, and women's relationships.

In 1914, four teen girls in a New York reformatory discover their sexuality and personal power as they reveal the horrifying events that led each to the same tiny dormitory room. Adopting birth control activist Margaret Sanger as their secret patron saint, they build a communal fantasy life where they travel the world, take lovers at will, and assassinate their enemies. Their fantasy life grows more and more elaborate until objects from their fantasy world start appearing in the real one—including a baby.
