Austin Playhouse present Age of Arousal
In Age of Arousal, Linda Griffiths’ created a fantasy-filled re-working of George Gissing’s 19th-century novel, The Odd Women. In late 19th century England, a population imbalance had almost twice as many women as men running around London. This meant that many women would never find husbands, would never be paired; they would be odd.
Fusing the political battle of the 19th-century suffragists with more personal struggles of sexual and gender identity, Age of Arousal creates a wholly unique world to explore love, desire, and the cost and promise of equality.
