THE FIGHT asks the question, what is feminism? What should a woman's life goals be? Based on innumerable interviews and vast amounts of research, THE FIGHT looks at the battles that convulsed modern feminism, both outside the movement and within it. Bringing to light previously untold and deeply personal stories along with buried scandals from these pivotal years of the Second Wave, THE FIGHT is a play that addresses vital issues from that time and today.
Caitlin Schultz (Laura Bozzone), grad student and single mother, goes to interview a great veteran of the women's movement, Doris Margolies (Judith Hawking) who was tossed aside.. She then visits the beautiful magazine editor, Phyllis Feinberg (Fleur Alys Dobbins) who guides the wing of the movement that displaced her. These two leaders gradually reveal to Caitlin what motivated their respective beliefs and why they came into conflict.
The Fight features Judith Hawking* as Doris Margolies, Laura Bozzone* as Caitlin Schultz*, Fleur Alys Dobbins* as Phyllis Feinberg, Mark J. Quiles* as Harry Kamen (and more!) and Matthew Provenza as Carl Margolis (and more!) - Actors appearing Courtesy of Actors Equity Association.
