Award-winning Comedy from Hollywood Fringe Festival Looks at Women’s Sexuality from an Alien’s Point of View

Los Angeles, July 12, 2017 – Ava Bogle’s one –woman show, The Pleasure Project, had its World Premiere this June at Rogue Machine Theatre as part of Hollywood Fringe Festival, where it received The Producer’s Encore Award. It will be returning for three final performances later this month.

About The Pleasure Project
Described as “the love child of The Vagina Monologues and Mars Attacks,” The Pleasure Project follows five aliens preparing to leave earth in light of an impending nuclear war who pose the question, can the clitoris save humanity? The comedic multi-media production combines film, dance, music, lip-syncing, and donut holes.

In a time when women’s reproductive rights are once again under attack, The Pleasure Project seeks to combat a culture that shames women for their sexual and reproductive choices by celebrating female sexual empowerment as something not only positive for women, but that could literally save the world.

“We don’t know what a world looks like in which females are sexually empowered. With this show, I’m trying to inspire us to hurry up and get there. We wanted to create this celebration of pleasure as an antidote to all the shame,” said Ava Bogle, the writer and performer of The Pleasure Project.
