A journey through shifting perspectives on chastity.  In the midst of our “over-sexualized society”, one woman has decided to pack up the pleasures of the past and embrace a new view on life.  Swerving smoothly between sour grapes and celebration, she takes her audience on a journey from the personal to the historical and mythic and back again.
 With rhythmic wordscapes, comic confessions, clever re-takes on old stories, striking visuals   and raunchy blues numbers and torch songs, the piece punctures a few taboos and informs, delights, unites and moves its audience.
Peta Lily is an award-winning performer/theatre-maker whose one-woman shows have received enthusiastic responses from audiences and the media.
“something of a crackpot glamour puss: she makes up her own rules” Time Out
“a compelling piece of theatre, beautifully written” Edinburgh Evening News
“funny where it hurts” The Guardian
