Title: The Amazing Grace Jones Spaceship
Author: Cullis, Rosemary
Department: School of English and Theatre Studies
Program: Creative Writing
Advisor: Gilbert, Sky
Abstract: The Amazing Grace Jones Spaceship is a full-length drama that hinges on a love triangle between three women: Charlie, Agnes, and Tuesday. Charlie, an attractive and charismatic young woman who is attracted to women, fiercely resists being tied down by labels and/or relationships. She has reclaimed her body as a site of pleasure and has a habit of seducing straight women. Charlie has a poly-amorous relationship with Agnes, who tolerates Charlie's inclinations. When Charlie meets Tuesday, Agnes is threatened by the relationship. The world of the play merges the boundaries of fantasy, memory, dream, and reality to explore how these women negotiate the way their sexuality is imagined as a source of desire, shame and degradation. Is pleasure trustworthy? Can sexual fantasies that involve playing with power be a joyful part of reclaiming our bodies? What are our responsibilities to others? To ourselves? How does queerness inform this project?
