FAST-PACED, TAKE-NO-PRISONERS FEMINIST SATIRE OF LIFE
Overweight Prom Queen Candidate Loses Crown! Housewife Keeps Severed Head On Cake Plate! Bambi Goes Haywire in Forest With Uzi! To the expiring mind of a modern American woman, life can read like a tabloid headline. Six Women With Brain Death is a wild and very left-of-center view of the world from an entirely feminine standpoint.
In a series of bizarre but hysterical songs and sketches, the authors explore TV soap operas, "genuine press-on nails," Barbie and Ken's secret fantasy life, divas, a unique and new way of recycling, and what "is" and "is not" feminine - with an unforgettable detour through a forest where Bambi meets Rambo.
