A one-woman show about her experiences with online (and offline) dating after being driven to the Internet by a husband who ignored her. Amusing and funny (some great jokes, especially about why the dungeon-dwellers wore black!). Some material may be shocking to some conservative audiences. Great use of PowerPoint media to enhance the experience.
Sex, lies and instant messaging!
Leslie’s in trouble. Serious, serious trouble. But don’t feel bad for her because mostly it’s her own fault. She’s in a marriage that began with love and happiness and lots and lots of sex. But at a certain point, the love had diminished, there was only occasional happiness and no sex. OK, once in a while, but only when the Dallas Cowboys won. How could she get the attention she craved? Well, thanks to the marvels of the Internet, Leslie found she had plenty of options — steamy e-mails, X-rated chat rooms, and dating websites that cater to every possible sexual inclination. For six years she prowled cyberspace and corresponded with countless men. She even met a few of them. Though most people would say 300 might be stretching the definition of “a few.” But then most people aren’t Leslie.
miss-matches.com — Leslie Beam’s new solo show — is an unvarnished account of one woman’s descent into sexual purgatory. A purgatory she shared with: a man she needed to temporarily marry each time they had sex, a convict (both ex and future), and a rabbit which was neither furry nor cuddly. Plus, there was the evening she served dinner to a group of strangers dressed in diamond earrings, arm bracelets and… well, just earrings and bracelets. Mostly though, it’s the story of a strong modern woman taking control of her sexuality – and completely screwing it up.
