Directed by Sande Shurin
AF PRODUCTIONS is pleased to announce the world premiere production of Anna Fishbeyn’'s SEX IN MOMMYVILLE, directed by Sane Shurin. SEX IN MOMMYVILLE will play a limited engagement at The Flea (41 White Street, TriBeCa). Performances begin Wednesday, August 18 and continue thru Sunday, August 29. Opening Night is Friday, August 20 (7 p.m.).
SEX IN MOMMYVILLE is a musical feminist comedy about the hilarious misadventures of a neurotic, guilt-ridden, health-conscious, sex-starved Manhattan mom trying to please her high-maintenance children, her lawyer-husband Zeus, and her Russian parents who live upstairs. As she discovers ingenious ways to escape her children (i.e. the TV and then some more TV) and seduce her husband (i.e. sing Russian gypsy ballads in her grandmother’s shawl and don old tan pregnancy underwear), she also discovers the inherent struggle and contradictions in what it means to be a mother and ultimately a woman in today’s hyper-anxious, self-perfecting, wrinkle-eradicating society.
