On the first Sunday of every month, Margot and her lady pals always host a theme party. What happens when Margot decides to kick it up a notch by having a sex toy party?
It is the premise for Talking Sex On Sunday created by Sara-Jeanne Hosie and Nico Rhodes. Getting its world premiere at the Firehall Arts Centre this month, in this new musical comedy the women share fears, reveal dirty secrets, explore new possibilities, and find the power of female friendship.
“I am delighted to be working with such a powerhouse team of actresses on this wonderful new work created by Sara-Jeanne and Nico,” says director Donna Spencer. “It’s a perfect piece for late winter and reminds us how for so many years – and even now – women have not spoken openly or been proud of their sexuality. Dr. Ruth has done her best to get us talking, but there is always more to be said.”
Vancouver Presents contributor David C Jones was live at the Firehall Arts Centre in East Vancouver with the company of Talking About Sex on Sunday as they prepared for opening night. In this Facebook Live event, we get a sneak peek at the show and chat with co-creator Sara-Jeanne Hosie to find out more.
