The Mystery of the Violated Vagina
The Mystery of the Violated Vagina takes place in a uterus just after the host body has been raped. External detectives investigate the “incident,” not wanting to call it a rape, while the host body deals with the real threat of insemination. This original musical straddles the lines of melodrama, absurdism, vaudevillian variety shows and late twentieth century television while dealing with the grey area of consent and the physical and emotional damage done deep inside many. The Mystery of the Violated Vagina scaffolds theatrical tools such as puppetry, music and an overall queer camp aesthetic in a comedic fashion to highlight the most absurd fact of all, that rape in fact exists at all and that most of the cases are rarely prosecuted.
