Webster’s Bitch

March 20, 2021 to March 21, 2021
Digital Programming

When their Editor-in-Chief gets caught using some rather colorful profanity, the employees of Webster's Dictionary find themselves at the center of an internet uprising over gender and obscenity in the age of social media. As office politics collide with ambition, morality, and lexicography, the future of the English language hangs in the balance. A play about vulgar words and the people who define them.
