Jonno (Ray Strachan) is a narcissistic, deeply insecure radio personality/author who gets violent with the women he dates. He says he’s a feminist and that he "loves women." He says women just don’t "get him."
Most women have known men like Jonno, and that’s just one truth that playwright Alix Sobler drops in a searing play full of them.
Don't get too hung up on the source of inspiration for this show, though. It’s actually about four women — the estimable Stephanie Sy, Charlene Van Buekenhout, Elena Anciro and Alicia Johnston — who are taking back their power.
It’s a smart, challenging, and often harrowing piece that delves deep into current conversations about everything from victim-blaming to the ways in which women tear each other down for not doing feminism right — but it’s also very funny, too (Rob McLaughlin is wonderful as Mr. Donkey Long Ears).
Oh, and the satisfying ending will make you stand up and cheer. Whatever you do, don’t miss this show.
