Our performance of WELCOME TO THE DOLL DEN went up at The Tank as a part of Electric Eye Ensemble's residency with the company. The show was devised by the company as well as performed as a short workshop piece at Dixon Place the previous year. I was honored to be a part of the process for this second run of the piece.

The story takes place in Memphis, TN following the rise and fall of WGAL, America's first all-girl radio station in 1955. The show is entirely based on the real lives and station (WHER) which helped shape America and start a movement, but is rarely ever spoken about. We watch the women create their "doll den", bask in their success, and question the world in which they live in.
