The O’Shaughnessy welcomes Sara Juli as she performs her hour-long solo show, Tense Vagina: an actual diagnosis at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, April 11 in the Frey Theatre at St. Catherine University.
Using 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 reveals its beauty, challenges, isolation and influence on the human experience. “A wonderfully magnetic performer” (The Stage), Juli focuses on the seldom-discussed and taboo aspects of motherhood, such as loss of bladder control, libido, tears, monotony, loneliness and dildos. “She had the audience laughing out loud as she lay bare her personal secrets,” said The Portland Press Herald (Portland, Maine).
Premiering in 2015, Tense Vagina received rave reviews at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2017. The O’Shaughnessy performance is made possible by the generosity of the New England Foundation for the Arts through the National Dance Project.
Tickets for Tense Vagina: an actual diagnosis are $8-$15. There are discounts for groups, students, seniors, MPR and TPT members, and military.
