The first time Six Women with Brain Death was directed by Sciro 20 years ago, people in Ruston said it was “the single most raved about and talked about play” of the season, Sciro said. Six Women With Brain Death or Expiring Minds Want to Know is a wild and very left-of-center view of the world from an entirely feminine standpoint. In a series of bizarre but hysterical songs and sketches, the authors explore TV soap operas, “genuine press-on nails,” Barbie and Ken’s secret fantasy life, divas, a unique and new way of recycling, and what “is” and “is not” feminine – with an unforgettable detour through a forest where Bambi meets Rambo. Definitely not for the faint-hearted, Six Women With Brain Death is a hard rockin’, harder talkin’ cult classic that the Department of Theatre is excited to bring you…again!
