Boy gets the girl? The conventional setup in plays has expectation associated with it. This play defies cultural expectation by exploding heterosexual myths and priorities. Race, age, and beauty are also exposed as cultural constructs, which can be constructed differently. Le Wow is a retelling of 1980s Montreal from a girl-culture vantage point. As a witness to certain places, Shiller is documentarian, and as a pop-culture analyst she weaves into her story a 1980s sensibility.
