GeekGirlCon ‘15 – Sunday’s Closing Celebration!

GeekGirlCon closes our con every year with something special for our attendees. Last year, we listened to, and got to ask questions of, former NASA astronaut Wendy Lawrence, and then closed out the evening with a slam poetry performance that brought tears to many eyes–including mine!

This year, join us once again for the last event of GeekGirlCon ‘15:

Vicious and Vulgar

Arthur Conan Doyle has risen from the grave, and he’s upset! In Vicious and Vulgar, local playwrights Sammy Scott and Alison Luhrs re-imagine the literary hero and wonder aloud: what would he think of all of the fanfiction, cosplaying, and conventions happening in modern times? A grumpy and abrasive reanimation, Doyle manifests Holmes and Watson in contemporary, female forms in attempts to prove to his audience that they have wasted their time with the canon. Throwing in Granada Holmes and a certain mouse detective, this play explores the themes, characters, and relationships in Doyle’s classics with a modern-day female-centric twist while asking the question: what is the relationship between a canon and the fan?

Having been called “strikingly original,” “entertaining,” and “deeply moving” by Seattle’s Sherlock elite, “Vicious and Vulgar” will be performed as a live reading with Scott and Luhrs in the roles of the eponymous heroes.
