WHORTICULTURE Emma Goldman-Sherman

About This Show

An Absurdist Confrontational Tragicomedy of out-sized proportions where Lark and her friends perform a Gender Studies thesis on the roots of female oppression while delving into Lark’s haunted past. These 3 Poisonous Flowers confront the deepest roots of how girls grow up in our pop music, social media, hater, racist, rape culture to expose the seeds of our oppression.  Cum and See, Live Girls in Pop-Soil!
