AT high noon you saunter through
the Diag and are bombarded by hol-
low social chatter. You're not alone.

an attempt to raise awareness about
the triviality of social habits. The
troupe often focuses on anxiety over
gender roles, expressed in mono-

women. Readings from poetry by
Marge Piercy make up a solemn and
disturbing facet of the hour-long
