Seattle, what is your definition of beauty? Impenetrable, which runs from April 11 - May 3 at West of Lenin Theatre, is a play that explores society's obsession with looks. It starts with a billboard ad of a bikini-clad woman with arrows pointing to "problem areas" that outrages the local community. Here's more info, including some special events during the play's run:

April 11 - May 3, 2014
Inspired by true events, Impenetrable, a play by Mia McCullough,
explores society's obsession with beauty in a deeply compelling and
funny way. In 2007, a billboard image of a gorgeous, bikini-clad young
woman appears superimposed with arrows pointing to "problem areas"
that a local spa can fix. Even an ideal woman, the ad proclaims, can
benefit from physical improvement. The community boycotts, but who is
the outrage against? The spa owner, for tapping into women's fears? Or
an entire society that values women for their looks more than their
personal achievements? This smart and revealing play delves into the
impossible expectations of female beauty, especially the ones women
(and men) place on themselves.
Rated "PG" ? appropriate for those ten years of age and older.
