Collaboraction presents the world premiere of Gender Breakdown, a compilation theater piece devised in response to the lack of gender equality on and offstage. Eleven female identified performers and an all-female design and production team weave together stories from conversations with over 220 theatre artists about what it really means to be a female theatre artist in Chicago. In doing so, Gender Breakdown explores the issues of misogyny, gender phobia, and racism and these absurd, uncomfortable, and gut punching stories will change your perception of what's behind the stage curtain.
