What are the virtues of “an actress?” The play Unexpected Woman is a delightful take on how women as artists view this era. The next-generation actors Seong Minchae and Jeong Sunyoung study the so-called essential virtues of innocence and sexiness in order to pass the audition for the film directed by Hong Heo-su. Although the two young women do not get cast despite their best efforts, they come to learn a new fact about the women of the past. Minchae and Sunyoung time travel and learn about the past and future of actresses. The Blue Beard Collective dismantles the conventional framework thrust upon actresses and explores new roles that women can create as artists.
