HOPS is a linguistic farce detailing a single day in the lives of a group of women existing in a place that may or may not be some warped Victorian reality. Romping through language, custom, and etiquette, this piece examines the games we play with the words we choose, and what it means to feel something underneath the verbal veneer.
