What Every Girl Should Know
It’s 1914 at a Catholic reform school for girls, and the sexual revolution is still half a century away. So it’s quite shocking when the new girl, Joan, arrives with more than just her suitcase—she’s brought birth control contraband, too. Joan keeps the materials hidden from administrators, but she shares them with roommates Anne, Lucy, and Theresa. She also shares the subversive messages passed on by the woman who originally distributed the materials: activist Margaret Sanger, whose organizations eventually morphed into the modern-day Planned Parenthood. As the teens delve deeper into their studies of Sanger, they replace religious conversion with conversion to women’s liberation, sharing dark secrets and fantastical visions along the way.
Though it’s set more than 100 years ago, Monica Byrne’s play remains timely, especially in the face of proposed governmental shutdowns of Planned Parenthood and continued political threats to women’s reproductive autonomy. NYTheatre.com agrees, declaring “As long as the war over women’s reproductive rights rages on, [this is] a story people need to keep telling” and dubbing the play “an excellent piece of theater” in the process.
