Performed at Broadway Performance Hall, October 12th, 2013

In V&V, playwrights Scott and Luhrs re-imagine the author Arthur Conan Doyle and wonder aloud: what would he think of all of the fan fiction, cosplaying, and conventions happening in today’s world? A grumpy and abrasive re-animation, Doyle manifests Holmes and Watson in modern, female forms in attempts to prove to his audience that they have wasted their time. This play explores characters, themes, and relationships in Doyle’s classics― all with a contemporary twist (with the help of Granada Holmes and a certain mouse detective, of course).

Creators Alison and Sammy will be doing a livechat tomorrow (4/5/14) at 1PM EST to answer questions about this piece. Send questions to theshescott, itriedthatonceitwasabadmove, or tag your questions #vicious and vulgar

Very very very excited to watch this!

I finally sat down and watched this and it was so so great.

Hey you! You’re on Tumblr and that means that you are a fan of things. You reblog stuff about your favorite shows and movies and stories. That means this play is for you. Fandom is powerful and transformative and you should watch this now because you are a part of it.

Don’t get me wrong, I love teenlock but like I never see art or fic where they are REALLY TRULY in the time they were actually teenagers in. Sherlock was born in like ‘81 right? Man I want to see him as a geeked out 80’s little kid and a 90’s teen. Mycroft rockin out some…

Do not teach your daughters to be ‘pretty.’

Do not entomb her in a pretty pink tower
and insist that only the degree of her physical appeal
may set her free.
Teach her to fight her way out,
to consume books and spit knowledge
to lesser boys who insist she is just beautiful
and nothing more.

Teach her to love her body
not to manipulate and put a price tag on herself
as a defined worth
she shall be immeasurable
she shall be more than this.

Do not let her break herself down
when the boy in kindergarden hits her
because he likes her.
What are you really teaching her?
Pain and love are not synonymous
neither are pretty and perfection.

Teach her to be kind
to be harsh
to be demure
to be wild
to be sensitive
to be thick-skinned

But good god,

Do not teach your daughters to be ‘pretty.’

if I ever see a girl in public who is clearly going for something really bold with her look (crazy hair, makeup, outfit) and looks like she’s maybe uncomfortable or nervous about rocking it, I make sure to go up to her and tell her she looks fierce. It took a lot of courage to go out like that and somebody ought to notice.

changes lives. be sure to do that at least once a day.

you’re the type of person this world needs

bless you
