Tickets Human Nature presents "Tales of a Sexual Tomboy", written and performed by Joyful Raven and directed by Jael Weisman. The show is a raucous one-woman comedy about a horny tomboy, equipped with bad boundaries from her hippie upbringing, looking for empowerment in all the wrong places. Blending stand-up and story telling, Raven recounts some of the more disastrous and misguided moments from her treacherous path towards sexual liberation. She tries, and often fails, not to overwhelm her lovers by being too horny, too bold or too passionate.

Treading on the boundary between comedy and tragedy, the piece asks some important questions about modern sexuality: How is a woman to display her power in a world that still asks her to be smaller, more passive, and more demure than she would like to be? Why, when we have come so far on the road towards women’s liberation, are women still so afraid to communicate their desires? With unflinching honesty, Raven delivers 60 minutes of dark comedy with deep heart.
“Brutally funny and honest. Think Lena Dunham if she was raised by northern California hippies.” - Chris Wolfe
