Tense Vagina: an actual diagnosis is about motherhood- its beauty, challenges, isolation, comedy and influence on the human experience. This evening-length solo uses humor, movement, sounds, songs, text and audience participation to reveal “all that is awesome and all that sucks” when it comes to being a mother. Tense Vagina focuses on the seldom-discussed and taboo aspects of motherhood, such as loss of bladder control, libido, tears, monotony, loneliness and dildos. With an original set by Pamela Moulton, lighting by Justin Moriarty, and costume by Carol Farrell. "She had the audience laughing out loud as she lay bare her personal secrets." (The Portland Press Herald, Portland, ME).
