BORDERLANDS THEATER ANNOUNCES OUR 2009/2010 SEASON “WHAT’S UNDER THAT SKIRT? A BORDERLINE LOOK AT GENDER.”
“What’s Under That Skirt? A Borderline Look at Gender” brings two plays that question mainstream notions of what is male or female through moving, earnest and shamelessly funny stories and characters, and a family favorite (with a feminist twist of course) for the 14th year.
SHE WAS MY BROTHER
by Julie Jensen
Julie Jensen, the playwright that brought us the critically acclaimed play “Dust Eaters” (2007/08 Season), is back with “the most unlikely love story every told.” What happens when two Victorian white anthropologists –Tullis, a mature woman and Wilson, a young man- encounter Lamana, a “two-spirited” religious leader of the Zuni pueblo? This moving and intense play, loosely based on historical fact, explores the borderline between love, sexual orientation and fluid gender identities.

BETWEEN PANCHO VILLA AND A NAKED WOMAN
by Sabina Berman
A witty and incisive comedy from one of Mexico’s leading playwrights. A glimpse at the primal macho hidden within the progressive intellectual and the desire to be loved smoldering within a liberated woman. “Between Pancho Villa and a Naked Woman” brandishes humor as a tool of critique and reflection on gender roles and feminist issues in contemporary Mexican society.
“Between Pancho Villa and a Naked Woman” has been produced in Mexico and the U.S. Its premiere production earned seven awards from the Mexican Critics Association in 1994, including Best New Play of the Year, and the show was eventually made into an award-winning film.
