Performance

Sex and the Abbey

August 22 – September 7, 2024
7PM

The Abbey is in trouble –– and only Hrotsvit’s play can save them! The canonesses need to impress Emperor Otto (who’s visiting tonight!) with a performance… by Hrotsvit, the first western woman who ever dared to write a play. Embroiled in lustful conflicts, the stress of daily prayers, and impassioned moral arguments, can these women save Gandersheim Abbey from male takeover? Find out in this hot goss from 10th Century Saxony!

The Omnivores and The Sống Collective bring you the first production of a Việt female playwright’s work in NYC, Sex and the Abbey, a new play by Diana Ly, directed by Emily Lyon.
