Encased in glass cubes, three women attempt alchemy as water rises.

In The Hysteria Triptych, 3 “hysterical” women try to transform their female bodies into something other than: object of desire. mother. property.

The play-a poem in three parts- explores the consequences and costs of having a female body and the ways in which the “female condition” of hysteria has punished, controlled and oppressed those who throw stones at the glass case.
