????? "Thorough and Taut" The Stage An Afrofuturist Space Odyssey Meet Mrs: an old lady who goes into outer space? in search of her own orgasm. Isn't that where all orgasms go? ? Her quest is sparked by three encounters: a young neighbour who discloses a secret, an old friend?who reveals she is intersex, and a would-be lesbian lover in a launderette who offers Mrs two drops?of her own pressed lavender and a smile that says, 'I handle delicates with care'.? ????? The Stage ????? All That Dazzles ????? to do list ????? Lost in Theatreland ???? The Times ???? Reviews Hub ???? Sardines Magazine STARS is a hilarious and moving mix of celebratory Black queer empowerment and arousal.?Performed by one woman and a live DJ, with projected animations, we join in an old woman's search?for her lost orgasm, spanning across outer space, with dustings of African mythology and folklore in?an unabashedly queer, feminist rallying call.
