The Moaning Yoni

6:45PM on July 8th at the Theatre Passe Muraille Backspace. (16 Ryerson Ave.)

A college student desperately trying to be normal resists the dictatorial pressure of her anthropomorphic vagina (or yoni). Together they cross the battlefield of Tinder, Sex-Ed, and Tantric hippies in a psychedelic journey. An absurd solo comedy about sex, identity and new age ideals, The Moaning Yoni combines dialogue, physical comedy, and song in a hallucinatory coming of age satire.

A lesbian and a straight man walk into a bar: a love story. It’s complicated. Lover Lover is a story on an old theme with a new spin. It is a story about unrequited love, but it is also a story about identity, sexuality, polyamory, and about limitations and possibilities.
