LEMONADE

Genre: Solo Performance
Written by Heather Litteer, Directed by Elena Heyman

Heather came to the Big Apple to become an actress. She worked her way up the ladder, playing hookers, junkies, and strippers. You know, the parts that most actresses are afraid to play. Then came the role of a lifetime...

Heather Litteer’s gripping, funny, heartfelt solo show explores how women are treated both onscreen and off. Her adventures as an actress and downtown darling are mixed with calls back home to her ill but steel magnolia of a mother, whose southern roots are so strong they can suffocate. Navigating the absurd misogyny of our mediaverse, Lemonade turns female exploitation on its head, and offers redemption to any woman who has even been typecast.
