Slut (R)evolution- Review

Carol Sinclair

Cameryn Moore’s one woman show explores her life as a Mormon and a monogamous lesbian while also regaling the audience about the sex-capades that have impacted her life.  Jumping from past to present and back again Cameryn’s sex life becomes an open book of pain, pleasure, laughter and acceptance.

Every memory shared had a clear purpose in the story that needed to be told, but the delivery was not consistently strong.  Many of the flash back scenes in which she was talking to an absent character still felt as though she spoke the entire conversation.  She can trust her audience more to follow the story without everything being explicitly said which could quicken the pace that lagged at times.  With that being said I think the messages one can attain from this production are important and worth discussing which to me outweigh some of the staging choices.

 

If you have ever questioned the hetero-normative monogamous way of life that has been set in front of you then this is a play you should see, it might help clear a few things up.
