Texas Theatre and Dance is delighted to introduce the cast of In Sisters We Trust, or My F*cked Up American Girl Doll Play, written by Justine Gelfman in collaboration with Susanna Wolk. This pointed, witty and darkly-humorous new play tells the story of the much-beloved American Girl Dolls who are all grown up and gathering for a televised Bachelor-style reunion to decide the fate of the company. Suddenly, the girls start disappearing; something glitches and we’re thrown into a glossy feminist co-working space on the brink of expansion. The progressive women at the helm are still perpetuating age-old oppressive practices, now just in a shade of millennial pink. In Sisters We Trust, or My F*cked Up American Girl Doll Play investigates how corporate feminism is repeating and rebranding mistakes of the past instead of finding new pathways to empowerment.
A talented cast of actors showcase their skill in bringing these characters to life, including Simon Salinas Jr. (Joaquin/Bob), Ava Nielsen (Felicity/Grace), Chantell Gonzalez (Josefina/Aerin), Angela Mata (Kirsten/Stefanie), Mack Thornton (Addy/Jordan), Ashley Diaz (Samantha/Maude), Keeley Bryant (Kit/Jemma), Grace Featherston (Molly/Lulu), Madison Palomo (Kaya/Maggie) and Barbara Chisholm (Harmony/Elder Member).
An outstanding creative team aims to immerse the audience on their journey through the dark recesses of two female-lead corporations, including Meagan Beattie (Costume Designer), Sarah Jean Elliott (Lighting Designer), Rebecca Fitton (Dramaturg), Clarissa Garcia (Stage Manager), Daniel Geld (Technical Director), Justine Gelfman (Playwright), Andy Grapko (Intimacy Director), Inji Ha (Scenic Designer), Jason Lee Huerta (Technical Director), Jenny Lavery (Director), Elias Merlo (Associate Sound Designer), Tobie Minor (Fight Director), Benjamin Randall (Projection Designer) and Peter Stopschinski (Sound Designer and Composer).
