Freshwater Theatre Company proudly presented the world premiere of Dirty Girls Come Clean: The Festival in rep with The Book of Liz in September 2011.
Featuring original and world premiere material by local writers and performers Cynthia Uhrich, Hannah Holman, Tamara Titsworth, Amy Salloway, Kjersti Bohrer, Alison Witham, Courtney McLean, Rachel Flynn*, J. Merrill Motz* and Ariel Pinkerton*, Freshwater Theatre’s festival examined this idiom and all its potential meanings. We took the phrase “dirty girl” and put it through the wringer.
By turns raw, hilarious, introspective and sexy, this confessional style festival featured all new work by some of the best local writers and performers in the Twin Cities. Running the gamut from autobiographical to biblical, each piece is a unique take on how women define themselves, or are defined by others.
