Sexual Geography by Lauren Ferebee

a staged reading directed by Abigail Birkett

Women’s studies department chair Carolyn Hendrix is getting her budget cut – again. Worse than that, the money is going to best-selling author Bruce Halston, who has made his fortune off a new field of study  - monetizing history. When he arrives to teach at her university, the two of them end up on a crash course that traverses history, gender politics, and power. A screwball comedy about higher education, Sexual Geography is, unfortunately, not quite far enough from the truth.
