DATING DETOX/ROMANCE REHAB/PUSSY POWER & POWER OUTAGES

Comedy badass spinster productions · Ages 21+ · world premiere · United States of America

Somewhere in the LBC (Long Beach, CA)…
A Woman of Color’s hysterically/awkwardly/painfully personal narrative as a devout spinster/ accidental cougar/badass (mis)adventuress, irreverently tackling women’s issues such as reproductive health (from first gyno exam to hysterectomy), New World Dating (a fan base of adolescents and convelescents), and born-again virginity (elective celibacy despite high libido), baffling the masses by defying stereotypes (“Why have you never married? You’re so beautiful!”), with a yummy sprinkling of mental illness, body issues, and questionable sex partners!
A traumatizing relationship disaster that makes Hurricane Katrina look like April Showers (ER psych hold? It ain’t the Marriott.) compels her to check herself into Romance Rehab. She goes from Dating Detox, a self-imposed, years-long, celibacy-based healing journey, to getting her brains banged out by a gorgeous 21-year-old. (Oh, yeah—and there’s other cool stuff in between!)

100% BIPOC cast& crew incl LGBTQA+

ENJOY ORIGINAL PRE-SHOW MUSIC!
Joy Jan Jones, a NYC-based opera and pop vocalist and songwriter generously provides us with FEMME-FIRED pre-show music. Her vocal stylings hark back to the soulful pop divas of the 70s and 80s. (Think Evelyn “Champagne” King, and Deniece Williams.)
