NOSEJOB is an original theater work that examines the relationship between desire, seduction, consent, and masculinity. It weaves together narratives from a 9th century abbey, a contemporary college campus, and an imagined future where the patriarchy has crumbled. The piece was inspired by the story of Ebba, a nun who lived in Scotland circa 870 A.D.; when Viking invaders pillaged her abbey, she famously cut off her nose, an act of self-mutilation that she hoped would help her avoid being raped and ensure her ascent to heaven. It has been suggested that this is the origin of the saying, "cutting off your nose to spite your face". Nosejob explores how women who compensate for violent male behavior have continued to be glorified in the twelve centuries since.
