  • 28 Sep 2017 12:27 PM | Aphra Behn

    "UN/MASKED, Memoirs of a Guerrilla Girl On Tour" has been named best nonfiction book of 2017 by Devil's Kitchen Literary Festival. 

    UN/MASKED, Memoirs of a Guerrilla Girl On Tour, follows the unmasked DONNA KAZ, and the masked APHRA BEHN through their often surprising 25 year journey. In a braided narrative that flips between 1977 and 1997, Donna Kaz describes, with an ironic and humorous voice, what it was like go from being on the arm of William Hurt and an insider on the sets of movies like Altered States and Bodyheat, to an anonymous outsider donning a scary gorilla mask to protest sexism at Broadway's Tony Awards. Donna Kaz hobnobs with actress Kathleen Turner and director Lawrence Kasden, while Aphra Behn organizes sticker campaigns focused at the big New York City theatres which produce season after season of only plays by white male playwrights. When the Roundabout Theatre's toilet stalls (in both women's and men's rooms) are plastered with Guerrilla Girls' stickers stating: In this theatre, the taking of photographs, the use of a recording device and the production of plays by women is strictly prohibited - the Roundabout announces their next season will include two plays by women. Aphra and the Guerrilla Girls take all the credit and go on to create comedic art and theater that blasts the blatant sexism of the theater world while proving feminists are funny at the same time.


The International Centre for Women Playwrights is a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting women playwrights around the world.
