Chances are you grew up knowing that girls were made of sugar, spice and everything nice, while boys had an ickier genetic makeup composed of snips and snails and puppy-dogs' tails. But even then, deep down, you knew that couldn't be right ... right? Chicago's Stage 773 presents Handsome Animals, in which the Chicago Slam Works House Ensemble explores how much there is to learn when we question everything we were once taught about boys, girls and the bodies in which we all live. Digging into the social construction of gender and body image, this show examines the many ways in which gender norms affect our lives.
This show is approximately one hour and 20 minutes long, with no intermission. It contains mature language and themes and is suggested for mature audiences.
