The event creator says
Glass Half Full Theatre presents the next installment of their live comedy series Missionary Position: Pleasure Journeys for the Intrepid Lady Explorer (Session 3).

Amelia Weatherbeaten (Caroline Reck) and Eleanor Dangerbottom (Cami Alys) are Victorian-era Lady Explorers and Spokeswomen for Hartman’s Hygenic Towellettes for Ladies, the first commercially available menstrual products for women. They travel around the world at the turn of the 19th century, hocking their products and lecturing hilariously on topics of interest to the Ladies Society for Ladies, Where Ladies Share Knowledge with Ladies. (That’s you.)

The topic for Session Three is Riding your Bicycle to Freedom and Other Lofty Apogee. Jay Byrd returns to his role as the Lady Hostess of the Ladies’ Society, joined by SPECIAL GUESTS Courtney Hopkin, Indigo Rael, and Sonnet Blanton. With the assistance of these ladies and a pair of High Wheeler bicycles, Matron Dangerbottom and Mistress Weatherbeaten shall inspire all ladies on the wobbly path to Suffrage and instruct them on the etiquette of “riding astride.” Part P.T. Barnum sideshow, part Victorian Geographical Salon, these ladies will offer a seat at their table but you won’t stay in it for long. Anticipate a raucous, interactive, inventive evening that kicks the stuffing out of stuffy “period” theater. Join us for the final theatrical performance ever at Salvage Vanguard’s Manor Road location before the doors close.
