About The Pleasure Project
In June 2017, The Pleasure Project had its World Premiere at Rogue Machine Theatre as part of Hollywood Fringe Festival. There it received The Encore! Producer’s Award. In 2018, the show makes its Australian debut in February at the Adelaide Fringe Festival , followed by the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Scotland in August.    

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.

“Women all over the world are constantly sent the message that our bodies aren’t our own and that we don’t have the same right to enjoy sex as men do,” says writer/performer Ava Bogle . “My mission with The Pleasure Project is to send the opposite message: to embolden women to take sexual agency and to inspire them to realize how powerful they are when they do.”

The Pleasure Project seeks to raise awareness for and work to combat a culture that shames women for their sexual and reproductive choices. The aliens in the show celebrate female sexual empowerment as something not only positive for women, but that could literally save the world.
