SEX & SEALING WAX

Genre: Comedy, Festival, Solo Performance
A new one woman show by ROMY NORDLINGER and ADAM BURNS that takes a sharp look at women’s sex roles.

"SEX & SEALING WAX" is a one woman show about sex roles and the role sex plays in our lives. Seven characters from the past to the present get down and dirty with the way they see themselves in the media mirror – and confront archetypes that just won't go away. Meet a 1950's Bride, a ‘50's Stripper, a 70's Child trying out Barbie's latest sex roles, a conservative London Housewife of the 60's, a Long Island Divorcee, a Widow and a Latino Libertine who tells all. In a climate of rising "moral values" and shrinking "freedoms," sex roles are becoming more strictly deliniated than ever. "Sex & Sealing Wax" takes a piercing look at just how much things have really changed since the sexual revolution.
About the Company: Midtown International Theatre Festival

The Midtown International Theatre Festival, now in its eleventh year, celebrates the diversity of theatre.  The MITF welcomes theatrical storytelling across a broad spectrum of genres, forms, identities, cultures, and appetites.  The MITF seeks to nurture these new ideas, perspectives, and stories on its stages, with an eye set on guiding these productions toward future success and longevity.  The festival, traditionally held in summer, represents a fantastic, often paradoxical, adventurous and intriguing cross-section of the forefront of the theatre world.  The MITF proudly hosts production companies from across the country and around the globe, uniting talent in one of the biggest theatre capitals in the world.

Mr. Chatterton created the MITF, a Midtown alternative to other theatre festivals, in 2000 as a way to present the finest off-off Broadway talent in convenience, comfort, and safety.  In 2008, the Festival added two 99-seat theatres and inaugurated the Commercial Division for upwardly mobile shows with commercial ambitions.  The MITF's artistic emphasis is on the script itself and therefore the Festival requests minimal production values.
