In its seventh season, this year’s all-female cast/female produced Ladies First series centers its theme around female spies (honey traps) and their tactics through times, cultures and socio-political contexts.

The production follows Ladies First’s signature four-part formula, which includes a reception, an award ceremony, a performance and an after-party. This year, the performance portion will be an installation, complementing the museum setting. The performance will be staged throughout the museum, with the performers strategically placed in their positions and incorporated into the context. The museum curator, Agne Urbaityte, will act as a guide, and will lead the audience from one performance spot to the next. The audience is invited to walk around and get close to the performers and learn about some of the artifacts in the museum. Chairs will be provided for those visitors who need to be seated.

The performance will last about 45 minutes and will occur three times during the evening: at 7:00 PM, 7:45 PM and 8:30 PM. The audience members can enter at any time after 6:30 PM and stay as long as they want. VIP ticket holders will receive a free gift and a complimentary after-party cocktail. The (secret) lady of honor will be presented an award made by artist Cecilia Mandrile in a festive award ceremony, following the Russian spy-themed reception, which will take place at 6:30 PM.
