  Daughters of Ire at Open Door Theater

Daughters of Ire

Open Door Theater
902 South Ridgeland Avenue Oak Park

Savanna Rae has crafted a script that's biting, fierce, hilarious, sexy, and unsentimental-not to mention full of contradictions and incisive feminist political and cultural analysis. At first glance one might ask: what is the relationship between women of ancient Irish myth and contemporary social justice? With Daughters of Ire, Rae illustrates the powerful link between how we construct women of the past (fictional and actual) and how we imagine possibilities for self-identifying women in the future.

Chicago Reader - Somewhat Recommended

"...Sadly, Rae isn't equal to the task of releasing the full power in this material as either a writer or performer. She can't decide whether she's telling us a series of ripping yarns or presenting, to quote her press materials, an "incisive feminist political and cultural analysis." Instead, she tries to do both and, as a result, does neither very well. She's also limited as a performer: all of the women look and sound the same. At 80 minutes the show feels too long."
