The Virgin, The Whore and Something In Between

The Madonna-whore complex, first identified by Sigmund Freud, is said to develop in men who see women as either saintly Madonnas or debased prostitutes. In sexual politics the view of women as either Madonnas or whores limits women’s sexual expression, offering two mutually exclusive ways to construct a sexual identity.While our season title is tongue-in-cheek, it does offer a clever umbrella under which to gather three plays that explore women’s identities in regards to sexuality,religion and the Christian/ Catholic morality of the societies in which they have been raised.
