ABOUT NO PANTS IN TUCSON
What if the fight for reproductive justice and bodily autonomy is predicated upon an 1883 ordinance from Tucson, Arizona that prohibited women from wearing pants?
The Anthropologists presents the World Premiere of No Pants In Tucson, a subversive comedy propelled by America’s obsession with regulating the female body. Drawing upon archaic state laws specifically targeting women and non-gender conforming people, The Anthropologists’ newest devised play dares to calculate the costs of gender-oppression. Crafted from historical research, found text and original writing, the play features a multi-racial cast of four and a creative and producing team of women, non-binary and transgender artists.
