Aggressive and apocalyptic, feminist and furious" -Culturebot
Zumba. Wine. Takeout. Porn. In the quest for personal and sexual empowerment, the Sister Support Group for the Daily Trials of Being a Woman tackles them all. But acts of feminist revolt rarely go unpunished, and the women find themselves caught up in something much bigger than their own liberation.

"Aggresive and apocolyptic, feminist and furious...The intelligent co-directors are Rachel Karp and Jaki Bradley."
"Where cutting-edge New York theater is headed...Co-directors Rachel Karp and Jaki Bradley bring to light the all too current issue of the price women pay for seeking sexual liberation."
"Daring, provocative and highly intelligent play about female objectification. Under the direction of Rachel Karp and Jaki Bradley, the cast includes a strong ensemble of six with the chemistry of an acting troupe that has been together for years."
-Theater is Easy
"#liberated is a feminist play to end all feminist plays. A strong commentary on objectification, sex, gender roles, and the great power that is anonymity on the Internet. Both Karp and Bradley were sharp in their vision and allowed the fun of the piece to shine brightly as the dark beats loomed later."
