Event Notes

× PlayGround presents BREED OR BUST by Joyful Raven for a limited three-week run, September 9-24, live at Potero Stage and simulcast online.

Fresh off her successful Hollywood Fringe run (Producer’s Enore recipient) and in the wake of the Supreme Court’s overturn of Roe v Wade, Joyful Raven returns to Potrero Stage for an encore performance of Breed or Bust. To breed or not to breed: that is the question Joyful Raven wrestles with in her new solo show. Blending standup and storytelling, Raven recounts her difficult reproductive “choices ” and contends with her primal baby making instincts. Should she surrender to the role of weird aunty OR should she start a GoFundMe to freeze her geriatric eggs? With her breeding window rapidly shrinking, she reflects on her abortions, the father of her abortions and the complexity of modern womanhood. Come for the laughs and stay for the sex education…in case you forgot how babies were made. For Mature Audiences.
