WICKETS is Fefu and Her Friends at 30,000 feet.
Set inside an airplane, the entire theater becomes the stage for this celestial rock opera where the audience is surrounded by high-flying action that takes place all around them--in the aisles, galleys and lavatories of a trans-Atlantic flight.
Immersed in a mystery, eight 1970’s stewardesses find themselves split between the private self and the public persona in this radical adaptation of Maria Irene Fornes’ Fefu and Her Friends.
Manned by this dedicated crew of stews, Wicket Air Flight 1971 takes off just prior to the crest of the 2nd Wave of feminism. The Original Eight valiantly go where no man had gone before—to the struggle of women in the workplace. On board, these stews look for mysterious signs of life and offer oxygen to a present-day feminism desperately in need of life support.
