THIS IS WOMAN.

THIS IS WOMAN.

A Play by Linnea Rose

Lights up on MAN and WOMAN standing DS. They are dressed in skin tone and skin-tight costumes, almost mannequin-esque. NARRATOR enters.

NARRATOR

(Gestures to WOMAN.) This is Woman.

Woman must be silent. Woman is the glory of Man. (Gestures to MAN) Woman is the source is evil for Man. Man is the source of evil for Woman.

WOMAN tries to speak. She is cut off.

Woman must be silent.

Woman is obedient towards Man. Woman is ruled by Man. Man is born Woman; Man is unclean.

WOMAN tries to speak. She is cut off.

Woman must be silent.

Women must not teach. Woman learns in silence. Women must not have authority over Men.

WOMAN tries to speak. She is cut off.

Women must be silent.

Man was created first. Woman came second. Woman was created by Man. Woman will never taunt Man with their bodies or clothing.

WOMAN tries to speak. She is cut off.

Women must be silent.

This is Woman. This is Man.

Beat.
