The Second City's She the People: The Resistance Continues!

December 1, 2019 - January 5, 2020

  • Directed by Carly Heffernan
  • Created by The Second City
  • 2 hours, including a 15 minute intermission

The Second City returns for a fresh, fierce, and fabulous SHE-quel.

The Second City returns to Woolly with a freshly written show inspired by the 2018 all-female, all-funny blockbuster, She the People. This brand new version further satirizes the reality of being a woman in this wild world, exploding the myths and misrepresentations surrounding body positivity, bachelorettes, Beyoncé, and the 2020 ballot.

"It’s a no-brainer to bring back last year’s all-female, all-star team. This is a dynamic experiment for Woolly and The Second City, to create innovative material and play with the continuity of beloved characters with this comedy troupe in a way unique to Woolly, DC, and the country."

- Maria Manuela Goyanes, Artistic Director
