A proper peer into female pleasure.
Let’s face it. We have always had a rocky relationship with vulva. Throughout history, across cultures and personally it has been viewed with suspicion, vilified and feared, provoking embarrassment and shame. Conversely, it has been celebrated, worshipped and held in awe, but this is not in equal measure.
This play is an expression of that. An account of the stigma surrounding female pleasure and the shame we are instructed to hold with it. It presents vignettes and an array of characters, all of which are created from personal experience or stories I’ve been told. It does not aim to teach or dictate but merely present the struggles and triumphs of those who possess this resilient and much maligned part of anatomy.
