Primary Stages is thrilled to welcome back Kate Hamill (PRIDE AND PREJUDICE, LITTLE WOMEN) in a continuation of our Living Room Commissions with her latest comedy, BADASS GALBOSS POWER HOUR (Mandatory Meeting – 11/18/2020) directed by Moritz von Stuelpnagel (BERNHARDT/HAMLET, HAND OF GOD). Set at a mandatory Zoom business meeting for a multi-level marketing company, Hamill highlights the joys and frustrations of connecting virtually while hilariously embracing the virtual stage. Filled with fanatical “girl power” advocates seeking to promote #GalBoss vibes only using defective lotions and lipsticks, BADASS GALBOSS POWER HOUR tells the chaotically comical story of pyramid schemes and opportunists embracing sisterhood as a business agenda.
Saturday, October 2 at 12noon Primary Stages will host a talkback event on Zoom with the Kate Hamill, the playwright of BADASS GALBOSS POWER HOUR. NO TICKET IS REQUIRED. Once registered, you will receive a Zoom meeting link via email.

The dramaturg's job is to read between the lines and enhance a script with specificity and accuracy. This 1-night workshop will teach you to watch and read a play from the perspective of a dramaturg and see what you've been missing. For the Virtual Production of Kate Hamill's BadAss GalBoss Power Hour, you will read the script and watch the virtual production in advance of class, and then delve into the show with Primary Stages Associate Artistic Director Erin Daley to gain perspective and insight. With your eyes opened, you'll be able to incorporate dramaturgical practice into your work as a writer, actor, director, or audience member.
