The Hemline Index

A poor economy lengthens more than the hemline.

In 1984: second-wave feminism, economic boom and mini skirts.
2014? Fourth-wave, underemployment, the mid-length.

Set in a fitting room, The Hemline Index  is a funny fast talking piece of theatre that delves into the minds of two twentysomething women as they contemplate work, relationships and expectations. The question is, has a lot changed in 30 years?

Women are getting married later, having children later, and hope to have it all figured out by 30.  Daughters, mothers, friends, lovers... Combining movement, verbatim and spoken word,  Fringe First Nominees Portmanteau will take you on a journey through time as measured by 'The Hemline Index,’ exploring the lives of two twentysomething women in their defining decade.
