Description

This new-to-the-fringe five-star monologue show explores the conformities of gender and sexuality in modern day society, through the wickedly absurd lenses of The Foetus, The Camera Girl, The Victim, The Drag Queen, The Cougar, and The Actor. Each character brings something new to the societal table – their fears, their loves, their hopes to come and their experiences past. Be prepared to laugh and cry, to relate and to isolate, and most importantly, to think differently.

The Wee Review (4/5 stars) 108 days ago

She Can’t Half Talk opens with six actors standing on stage, periodically blurting out commonly-held beliefs, stereotypes and age-old tropes relating to how people are viewed based entirely on their gender and sexuality.
