This cast is composed of 7 women.
This cast must be diverse.
This cast cannot be all white women. Full stop.
This cast is composed of actors of the present.
They represent whatever social justice women need be. They are playing themselves.
They are putting on different hats from predecessors prior. They put on the characters.
We see them put them on.
We see them take them off. ***
These are some of the figures that may be featured in the play. Their names are not mentioned.
It is worth noting who we’re representing on stage, though. Different players can play the same figure. Or not.
