Strange Flesh by Maxine Dillon ’17

THE DRAMAT SPRING EX

Strange Flesh is a play about love, and about the ways it is often unspoken, or even unspeakable. The title is a reference to Professor George Chauncey’s “U.S. Lesbian and Gay History” lecture on sodomy and heresy in colonial New England. Our play explores these subjects by telling the story of a town called Eden.

Set in the winter of 1674, the play revolves around the story of Elea Bradshaw, a girl coming of age in a world that condemns expressions of sexuality not befitting the Puritans’ understanding of Biblical law. When Elea is witness to an unspeakable act, the town and its people begin to unravel in the mystery of what happened in the woods. The ensuing scandal raises questions about the nature of lust, love, and the close bond between the two young men caught in the middle of it all.
