The Anastasia Trials in the Court of Women
Actually a farcical play within a play, the drama opens as members of a radical feminist theatre group are about to implement their innovative lottery system aimed at ensuring equal opportunity for all. They each draw the role they will play on this evening from a hat, putting sisterhood to an iron test. The performance that follows is the conspiracy trial of five women who are accused of denying the defendant Anastasia Romanov her identity. Audience members decide throughout to overrule or sustain the attorneys' motions, creating a different play at every performance.
