breaking bad

Vagina Monologues

Well. Phew. I'm glad it's over, but I'm glad I did it. Massive credit due to happytune, without whom none of it would have taken place. We raised over a thousand pounds straight profit for charities.

I think the audience in general were pleasantly surprised that it was a competently done performance, and provided quite a range of experiences and emotions. What I relished about it was the strength and variety of the personalities involved. We had a hugely extrovert woman doing full-volume orgasmic simulations, and a restrained introverted woman controlling the audience into silence. the audience laughed and applauded and responded much more strongly than I anticipated, which was lovely.

It was very good to meet lamentables and her partner, while matildabj, altariel and kalypso_v stayed the night, and we chatted until the early hours, so good to see them all.
