2W, 2M

Nadine is exasperated. Her boyfriend Cedric loses his job after performing a sexist stunt that quickly goes viral. Cedric's intellectual brother, a columnist, earnestly offers his help to cure Cedric of his "latent misogyny" while showing no awareness of his own sexist inclinations. Feeling invisible and isolated, Nadine gets pulled into the unexpected games of the babysitter and in the process, discovers a part of herself she didn't know was there.

A daringly feminist and humorous play that pulls no punches, Babysitter is inspired by the "Fuck Her Right in the Pussy" events that took place in Ohio in 2014.
