The Stilettos Monologues may or may not be a feminist play, and is performed by an all-female cast! Centered around the emotionally divisive shoe – the stiletto, The Stilettos Monologues mixes symbolism and straight-forward story-telling in a modern interpretation of the pageant play. In it, sixteen characters – women and female gendered shoes of various ages – tell dramatic and humorous stories of identity, relationships, love and desire, femininity, and empowerment. The play’s fifteen monologues integrate African American and diasporic cultural expressions as women and shoes weave intricate stories through slam poetry, jazz, story-telling, and integrating Greek step traditions of African American sororities.
