• “Donna Kaz’s book is more than a wildly entertaining snapshot of 80s art culture. More than an answer to the question of, “Who were those crazy feminist activists behind the gorilla masks?” It is a generous, fearless, often hilarious coming of age tale that takes Kaz from being a victim of domestic abuse in Hollywood to becoming an artist and part of one of the most unforgettable art protest groups of our time.”

    – Elissa Schappell, author of “Blueprints for Building Better Girls”

  • “In alternating chapters and eras, Donna Kaz’s memoir divulges her secret lives. In the ’70s her public identity was that of a struggling actress and girlfriend of a famous Hollywood star, while privately she was a victim of domestic violence, chillingly addicted to her life-threatening relationship. Two decades later she began a nineteen-year career as an activist with the clandestine arts gender-justice warriors The Guerrilla Girls, granting the reader a security pass into a mysterious and renowned revolutionary arts secret society. A compelling and page-turning read, and a testament that fighters for fairness and justice are not born: they are made.”

    – Kia Corthron, playwright and author of The Castle Cross the Magnet Carter

  • UNMASKED, Memoirs of a Guerrilla Girl On Tour by Donna Kaz – “Kaz really is a graduate of the school of hard knocks, in the most literal and visceral sense. In this often hilarious yet heartbreaking memoir, Kaz chronicles both her courageous struggle to overcome deep-seated emotional trauma and her ongoing involvement as a fierce advocate for women’s rights both in the theater and in life.” – Booklist


  • “Snappy, funny scripting and a moving plot will make JOAN a hit at this year’s fringe.”

    Radio Forth, UK

  • “UN/MASKED is a vivid memoir of an eager, energetic woman of the theatre confronting sexism in love and art. It’s also a rare first-hand account of life inside the famed Guerrilla Girls, those gorilla-masked artists and performers who made feminist protest daring, original and fun.”

    – Katha Pollitt, The Nation Columnist, poet, essayist and author

  • “Raw, physical and bursting with energy, JOAN will make you sweat!”

    Electric City

  • “JOAN is an amazing, brilliant show where every element has come together in perfect alignment. The story avoids epic overkill and goes straight to the heart of the human behind the myth.”

    The Stage, UK

  • “Kaz’s JOAN dodges romantic traps and takes the early feminist’s life story in a new direction, rooted solidly in history.”

    American Theatre Magazine

  • “THE WANDERER is an upbeat, one-act play full of complex emotions about the culture shock that comes from moving from New York City to Los Angeles.”

    The Santa Monica Outlook

  • “PERFORMING TRIBUTE 9/11 shows the heroism of people who have chosen to respond to devastation and hatred with quiet determination and a belief that they can and will make the world a better place.”
