The Fanny Hill Project (TheatreState)

By | Published on Wednesday 14 August 2013

“Guys, what was that?!” I hear some audience members saying after the play has finished. Indeed, The Fanny Hill Project is a deliberate assault, a wicked, morbid satire on beauty stereotypes. A feminist statement, if you will, that sharply criticizes the way in which pop culture and media choose to depict and objectify women. A circus of colours blends with overtly sexist jokes and in the background, a young woman is struggling to reach the surface in a misogynist and chauvinist society. What are we to understand from it? Our feelings range from deeply uncomfortable to utterly irritated, or to feeling assaulted; we understand the absurdity of these social rules as we try to shake off our exasperation.

Zoo, until 26 Aug, 4.05pm.
