Drama. Poetry. California Interest. Women's Studies. LGBTQIA Studies. Honey, our protagonist, is on the run from both her past and her present; avoiding questions about love, bodies, language, and the extents of all three. But her friends—the impish Maenads—refuse to just let her escape. THE SHAPES WE MAKE WITH OUR BODIES is a feminist, queer, maximalist piece—spanning caves, hills, courtrooms, and kitchens about a woman torn by her desires, unwilling to bend to the needs of men, yet hesitant in the face of her wildness.
