What if the world was Femme?

At Medusa’s comedy club, the host is no longer the Medusa of myth (though she’ll tell you the tale - as she remembers it). She is a lipstick lesbian battling the patriarchy that tried to kill her eons ago. Her weapon? Stand-up comedy! With some very unusual takes on historic and mythic events, her "tight ten" runs a bit long, and what she considers “relatable content” ranges from her salad days with Sappho to sicking the harpies on her least favorite Supreme Court religious extremists.   
 
The other “comics,” all played by Karen Anne Light in this solo play, absurdly express parts of the Femme archetype, provoking Medusa into deeper truths. Butter Sandwich strains to share poetic insights about her favorite dish, but she’s so exhausted she can’t get off the floor. Tremble Lip, a breathy, sweet femme just wants to ride in cars, drinking milkshakes with the butch of her dreams. Together, these characters mend a fragmented and forgotten Femme mythology.

"Light’s has a winning character in Medusa...[her] high concept show finds other aspects of the female psyche taking the stage, and Light smartly differentiates her characters." - The Orlando Sentinel, Matthew J. Palm

"In this gonzo solo performance art piece...Light’s reimagined monster is a queer femme icon  . . . . This Medusa may not turn audiences to stone, but there’s certainly something hypnotic about her . . . . You don’t have to be a harpy, historian or homosexual to be engrossed  . . ." -The Orlando Weekly, Seth Kubersky

“Powerful, beautiful, and intensely dynamic”-Krysti Reif, HHN

“Intensely poetic and delightfully avant garde exploration of Greek mythology and queer femininity.” -audience member, Orlando Fringe
