MOXIE Theatre presents Voyeurs de Venus by Lydia Diamond
They called her The Hottentot Venus, but she had a name. Based in part on the unbelievable true story of Saartje Baartman, an indigenous woman from southern Africa woman who was captured and displayed on the streets of 19th-century London and Paris. Fast forward to the turn of the millennium in Chicago. Pop-culture expert, Sara Washington, is offered the book deal of a lifetime if she’s willing to tell Saartjie’s story. As bizarre dreams and the ghost of Saartjie come to life, Sara is tempted by more than fame and fortune. A provocative, profound, and unapologetically funny tale race, class, and gender.

This play contains partial nudity and mature content.
