That’s Why We Have a Body!

The award winning play, Why We Have a Body, by Claire Chafee is literate and lyrical with both hilarious scenes and “shattering moments,” explains local director, Robert Hooker. Chafee’s characters are not of the color-in-the-lines variety: a jungle-traipsing, feminist-theorizing mother, a lesbian private eye, a bubbly bisexual paleontologist, and a robber of convenience stores who thinks she’s Joan of Arc. Together (sometimes through telepathic communications) they explore the meaning in their lives, their relationships, and what it means to be a woman in modern times. Oh, and there are hot lesbian love scenes. Why We Have a Body previews tonight at Sol Theatre Project (1140 N. Flagler Dr., Fort Lauderdale). Preview tickets are $20 and curtain is at 8 p.m. Please visit, or call 954-801-9207.
Thursdays-Sundays, 8 p.m. Starts: June 19. Continues through July 6, 2008
