LORENA, A Tabloid Epic

October 14 – 24, 2021

Boston Playwrights’ Theatre

LORENA: A Tabloid Epic spins out of the media hailstorm surrounding Lorena Bobbitt, who became a sensation after she used a kitchen knife against her abusive husband in 1993. The tacky dystopia of American pop culture tumbles onto the stage in a series of funhouse vignettes that know no bounds, while The Playwright desperately tries to protect Lorena from the play, which has clearly gotten out of her control.

Written by Eliana Pipes and directed by Erica Terpening-Romeo, LORENA: A Tabloid Epic is a BU New Play Initiative production, produced by Boston Playwrights’ Theatre and the Boston University College of Fine Arts School of Theatre.
