In Distractingly Sexy, join real-life scientist and writer, Mily Mumford for an interactive ultra-funny, quite-wild, history of how women in science have been fucked over for centuries.
Tell us about the show.
Nebula Company Theatre writer/performer Mily Mumford has teamed up with the After Party crew as directors and dramaturges to create a fast and wild comedy about the history of women in STEM (Science, Tech, Engineering and Math) and what it is like to be one of those women in real life.
Drawing on Mily’s personal experience in the science and technology fields and the entire team’s sketch comedy and fringe tactics, the result is a tour de force of the ladies of the lab and the hilarious, and not-so-funny made funny, barriers to women in science today.
Why should someone come see your show?
The show isn’t just for people wanting to learn more about science history, although if that’s for you it is a plus, it’s a show for everyone who loves the R-rated audience engaging comedic style of fringe shows with few boundaries.
If your show was a superhero which superhero would it be, and why?
It would probably be Barbara Gordon’s Batgirl/Oracle as it is a redhead with mad science and computer skills with awesome fighting skills who tries her best to overcome hardship.
If you could see only one show at the Vancouver Fringe this year, besides your own, what show would that be?
Interstellar Elder from Snafu Dance Theatre.
