Can a virgin be forced to live happily ever after? Or will she be guillotined?
When Mary Joan Holy, a pregnant virgin, visits Dr. Gabriel, the world-famous Freudian gynecologist, she has no idea that she is on her way to commit a crime against humanity – or worse, a war crime. Throughout her travels, she will be confronted with a variety of egocentric, quirky characters who will leave her no choice. Will she unravel the mystery of the Inconceivable Conception? Or finally disgrace herself?
There are no answers in this absurdist comedy. Only the suspicion that absurdity is closest to reality.
Lady Barbe-Bleue is an artist collective created by Celine Nyanga and Spanish writer/producer Monica Gozalbo to explore various visual and literary art forms. Uterine Affairs is Lady Barbe-Bleue’s first venture into theater.
