POONSTRUCK™ is an original story/performance told through the character Dr Tallulah, a fiery Sexual Activist, Zen Cosmetologist, Intuitive Energy Healer, and Vaginal Consciousness (VAGCON™) Pioneer. Imagine a metaphysical cross between Archie Bunker, Dr Ruth, Carol Burnett, Edith Bouvier Beale, and Maria Bamford with a splash of cosmic viagra! Her story involves a personal revelation, follows a hero’s journey, taps into the zeitgeist of a New Age baby boomer generation, and walks the line between satire and the performer’s (Nesbitt’s) own vulnerability in her quest for intimacy. This zany comedy juxtaposes pratfalls with the seriousness, absurdities with sincerity, and pathos with humor while exploring themes of aging, womanhood, sexuality, intimacy, societal expectations, individualism, whiteness, and alienation. This hilarious performance employs Qi-Gong Gi-Long foam rolling techniques, traumatic storytelling (with a twist!), ‘La Femme Fontaine’ (just a little (spr)YAY!), and some audience participation with a Dr Tallulah Q&A. No vagina is necessary to tap into the fold! Come witness Dr Tallulah’s humorous and spiraling descent into the exploration of her sexuality, which ultimately reveals her HEART’s truest desire. It’s gutsy, hilarious, poignant, and brilliant! ‘This is activism!’.
