Tales of a Sexual Tomboy

sexualtomboy

Saturday April 1st 2017 / 7:30 Doors / 8pm Show / $15
Refreshments available for purchase
‘TALES OF A SEXUAL TOMBOY’ – awarded “Best of the Fringe” at the 2016 San Francisco International Fringe Festival – is a bold one woman comedy written and performed by Joyful Raven, directed by Jael Weisman – former director of the Dell’ Arte Players Co. and the San Francisco Mime Troupe.
A raucous one-woman comedy about a horny tomboy, equipped with bad boundaries from her hippie upbringing, looking for empowerment in all the wrong places. Blending standup and storytelling Raven recounts some of the more hilarious and misguided moments from her treacherous path towards sexual liberation. Let’s just say the generation after the sexual revolution is a little bit confused! Her uproarious stories highlight the blatant veins of misogyny that lurk in our culture and sex lives. With unflinching honesty, Raven delivers 60 minutes of dark comedy with deep heart.“It’s one of the funniest shows now on display on Bay Area stages.” – SF Chronicle.

“Raven is a talented and truthful performer…Using skillful impersonations and amazing physical comedy…she connects the stories from her life right before our eyes and comes out stronger on the other side.” – Theater is Easy NYC

“Tales of a Sexual Tomboy is powerful, sexy, liberating” – The Union, Nevada County
