Sofia Lindgren’s current news
I'm currently collaborating with playwright, Courtney Stirn, to create a new play about a pirate princess, called Rebel Princess! It is an adaptation of a story I found in a children's book about a princess who runs off and becomes one of the most feared pirates on the seven seas. That tale is based on the Hasidic story "The King and the Emperor." Over the last several months, we've been workshopping the pieces with with the most insightful, talented, and funny femmes we would find. When asked for three words to describe the piece, our wonderful collaborators said: adventure, utopian, choral, clever, independent, freedom, fantastical, femme power, tender, f*** the patriarchy, f*** the binary, and pirates (of course).
