Allure and Candy become goddesses. A man falls from the sky. Flowers + Mary Shelley fall in love. & cam girl Eurydice_19969 wants to make that ca$$$h. feminine octagon [or, aristotle can eat me] is one hour, one night, one hundred nights in the search for an unforgettable, life-changing party. The play examines what it means to be femme and feminine, and how that is commodified and curated, socially, economically, and online. A rave, fever dream, and a non-linear narrative exploring and exploding Aristotelean play structure.
