Tara Sands’s versatile performance captures the powerful message and feminist themes of this compelling story. Plum is fighting her weight to become Alicia–her thin, beautiful alter ego. In order to earn the money for the plastic surgery she needs, she joins the Baptiste Plan and finds herself in the midst of a different kind of war–an undercover feminist movement. Sands’s range and command of voices dramatically capture the diverse characteristics of macho misogynists, fierce feminists, bubbleheaded porn stars, and horny frat boys. Additionally, Sands’s deft control of pacing and volume conveys an air of ironic nonchalance that accentuates the story’s shocking actions against women as well as the satire of this entertaining story.
