THE FAINTING ROOM to be Presented by The Irondale On Women Festival Photo THE FAINTING ROOM to be Presented by The Irondale On Women Festival

The Fainting Room is an explosive release of physical comedy, music, and candid confession. This raucous one-woman show explores how the mental/physical diagnosis of hysteria (a disease which continued to be recognized until 1952) has shaped our understanding of mental and sexual health today, examining the intersections of gender, mental health, sexuality and body positivity while celebrating self love and agency over the care of our own bodies. It follows the journey of a modern young woman who finds herself transported back in time to an 1890's medical treatment facility. There she encounters two different doctors, a midwife and an anthropomorphized vibrator as she is exposed to absurd medical treatments and anatomical misunderstandings of the past. Running time is 60 minutes with no intermission.
