Your Sexts are Shit: Older Better Letters

YOUR SEXTS ARE SHIT: OLDER BETTER LETTERS
Written and Performed by Rachel Mars

 

Award-winning theater-maker Rachel Mars visits NYC for the first time with a gloriously rude new show that unearths the hot-as-hell letters that make sexts blush.

Before sexts there were hand-written letters. And loads of them were proper filthy. With the help of the internet, friends, and two sexologists, Mars has unearthed missives dating back centuries. Triangulating these sex and love letters of long dead artists with contemporary sexts and a meditation on the construction of the queer female body, the show is a tender and surprising hour that asks: how do we write ourselves and for whom?

Come! Take pleasure in James Joyce’s passion for arse, find out who sneaked her gay lover into the White House, hear from Frida Kahlo, Georgia O’Keeffe, and Mozart, and bear witness to the best/worst sexts ever sent.
