she's comin

in progress

She’s Comin is a semi-autobiographical piece about a woman's pursuit of an orgasm and the dynamics of gendered want. It asks the question: how can we morally pursue goals while we’re entrenched within the patriarchy?  I am currently developing this story as a graphic novel. Once complete, I will adapt it into a multi-media, one-woman show. 

Few things are more gendered than feminine self-doubt, and I was once close to abandoning the project out of concern that its semi-autobiographical nature condemned it to a shallow and ego-driven fate. I then told a few women about the concept and saw the spark in their eye. This isn’t my story, this is our story.
