‘TENTACLES’ is a tongue-in-cheek feminist exploration of Tentacle Porn, and the third collaboration between Tessa Flannery and Rebecca Cunningham. Grad student Tessa (Flannery) is presenting her doctoral thesis on feminist ravishment fantasies when the manterruptions of former-flame-turned-porn-star Chris (Fayne) thwart her presentation. As she unravels, her own secret fantasies come slithering in uninvited. This 50-minute funny, moving play leaves both performers and audience wondering how, in the #metoo era, we reconcile our fantasies with our feminism.
Produced by Voyage Theater Company at FRIGID NY 2018, featuring Fight/Intimacy Direction by Claire Warden.
