Martyrs | Behind the Scenes of the World Premiere

"Sisters do it for themselves in Romana Soutus's new play, described as a 'convent party turned upside down.' The piece has been developed with director Pirronne Yousefzadeh and an all-female cast of nine." -TIME OUT NEW YORK

The Downstairs at La MaMa is transformed for the world premiere of Martyrs this weekend -- a fall down the rabbit hole of shame, femininity, and food! This all female cast and creative team are loading into the space in preparation for this unforgettable slumber party where tensions rise as Cat and Kitten, the two main characters, negotiate restraint versus indulgence & sensuality versus innocence. 

Scroll through a 360-sneak peek of this incredible set complete with two twin beds complete with pink comforters and plenty of pillows where the cast will play from April 19th to May 6th. Nine actresses round out the ensemble featuring Madison Fae, Shea Kelly, Kayla Jackmon, Kimiye Corwin, Alexandra Lapp, Lindsay Rico, Amira Nader, Jenna Bosco and Shelley Fort.

Tomorrow is your last chance to purchase limited $10 tickets for Martyrs before opening night -- part of La MaMa's TEN @ $10 program to ensure our productions are accessible for everyone!
