The Ins and Outs of Fingers, Spoons and an Open Marriage, a play written and performed by Pascale-Roger-McKeever and directed by Austin Pendleton, will be held Saturday, December 17th, at 7:00pm. Door will open at 6:30PM for a reception featuring wine and light fare (included in the ticket price).
About the Play:
A suburban mom accepts her husband’s invitation to open marriage and proceeds with a singleness of purpose no one saw coming. The Ins and Outs acknowledges and embraces the acute discomfort of living out our inescapable sexuality. A funny and shameless exploration of shame itself that for good measure upends accepted notions about healing and self-realization along the way.
Ins and Outs is produced by Robert Chestnut in collaboration with the Carl Cherry Center for the Arts. Warning: explicit language and adult subject matter not suitable for children under 18. Tickets are $50, available on Eventbrite or by calling (831) 624-7491.
From Michael Billington, theatre critic, The Guardian: “A remarkable journey into the interior of a woman experiencing what Shakespeare called ‘the very wrath of love’… brilliantly performed and written with gut-wrenching honesty by Pascale Roger-McKeever.”
From Elissa Barnard, NS Review: “Roger-McKeever strips away all the bells and whistles of theatre and conventional ideas about mothers and sexuality for an amazing, unflinching look at a woman’s life […] and delivers a spellbinding performance as she weaves in and out of past and present, quiet and loud, motherly and sexual, sarcastic and ribald, sad and playful.”
Megan Grabowski, Pittsburgh Review. “McKeever is brilliant in her delivery of Mom. She is ecstatic, sad, scared, insightful, and all that makes up a woman. And truth be told (finally), moms know there is nothing else like motherhood to strip a female of her identity.”
