Your Problem With Men chronicles the hilarious fall from grace of Asun, a woman who breaks off her wedding engagement because the question wasn’t popped the way she always dreamed of – only to face the darkest demons of her loneliness and regret. In her emotional roller coaster ride, Asun is surrounded by a colorful string of characters: her parents, her two sisters, her ex-boyfriend (who has become now a shock jock radio personality) and, oh yeah, the ghost of Jane Eyre.
This world premiere production of Emilio Williams’ relationship satire is the first time Teatro Luna produces a show written by a male playwright and is part of a year-long development process during which Emilio Williams has been working as “Artistic Affiliate” with the ladies of Teatro Luna. Although on the surface it seems a far cry from the work that Luna is known for, the Ladies knew they wanted to produce this script as soon as they heard it read for the first time in 2012 because of it’s complicated subject matter and the central question: As women, what types do we play and reject in our romantic relationships“? This play continues our tradition of using cheeky, pop-culture nods in language and aesthetic while investigating deep, complicated, social dynamics and stereotypical female mythology we universally play into in the United States.
