A Director's Studio Presentation.
Eitan is 17. Avi is 35. Eitan loves Arsenal. Avi loves his wife. Eitan goes to school. Avi is trying for a child. Every Friday they immerse in the holy water of the Mikvah, participating in a traditional Jewish ritual. They talk about football. They talk about their synagogue. They talk about women. And as their bond deepens, a transformation begins that threatens to disrupt life outside the Mikvah. A play about joy, the courage it takes to confront our desires and how easily a heart can break.

The American Girl Dolls are all grown up and gathered together for a televised Bachelor-style reunion to decide the fate of the company. But suddenly, the girls start disappearing; something glitches and we’re thrown into a glossy feminist co-working space on the brink of expansion. The progressive women at the helm are still perpetuating age-old oppressive practices, now just in a shade of millennial pink. In Sisters We Trust, or My F*cked Up American Girl Doll Play investigates how corporate feminism is repeating and rebranding mistakes of the past instead of finding new pathways to empowerment.
