Looser Women Fundraiser

Suzanne Portnoy & Tim Fountain perform a script about the new generation of loose women

About the project

Tim Fountain and Suzanne Portnoy know more about sex than most people and have now decided to pool their experience and create a show for and about the sex lives of forty-something women, based on their own lives and those of their readers and fans. The show will feature three actresses, Vagina Monologues style, though the tone will be very different. This will be a funny, filthy night out full of real life dating stories taken from the mouths of real Looser women.

Stories like the encounter Suzanne had with the guy who dressed up as a gynecologist but brought a stethoscope and the postman who deposited more than a package on his mail route. Funny, tragic, shocking and sweet, the stories will all be authentic tales from the mouths of broads who are no longer chasing Mr. Right but just looking for fun and excitement. Past prime baby-making age and no doubt with a marriage (or two) behind them, this new generation of women are loud and proud and very much 'out there' as they never have been before. This is Sex and The City for forty-something British women.


What are the funds for?

The financing is required for a fundraiser performance to enable Suzanne and Tim to perform the script before a live audience post its run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in August and make any adjustments necessary prior to the touring show. The show has been booked into the Gilded Balloon in Edinburgh for 25 performances 3-29th August 2011.
