If you think your butt's too flat or your boobs too small, your nose too long or your legs too thick, your waist too round or your hair too dull, this is the play for you. How do we compete with the perfection of Instagram Beauty? How incredible it would be to be free of the pressure to appear magazine airbrushed, of youth being the benchmark for perfection, but rather accept that the ideal body, the perfect body, is simply…what we already have. Perhaps our imperfections are what make us perfectly unique. Turning 50 is finally the time to accept reality, verses expectation... right?!
Join us for Linda's 50th Birthday celebration, as Repertory Actors Workshop (RAW) Shortburst® Theatre presents a one-night-only production exploring the difference between perseverance and stubbornness, frustration and acceptance. Why is perfection so important? Is perfection desirable? And perfect to whom? When is good enough good enough?
