"Oh My F*#king God Grief Makes You Horny!"

A hilarious new, semi-autobiographical play written by Tatiana Hotere. SKIN HUNGER is one woman’s roller-coaster journey through Grief, God and ‘Gasms. Raw, passionate, sexy, and heartbreakingly funny, this show is for anyone who’s ever lost someone, and had to find themselves (and perhaps their clitoris) again. 

 Skin Hunger explores the intersection of grief, faith, and sexuality. After the death of her husband - grief-stricken Eva, a perimenopausal woman of faith - embarks on a journey of self-discovery, spiritual awakening, and sexual empowerment. Amidst a deluge of tragic tinder dates, self-doubt, and Catholic guilt, she finds the courage to forge a new path for her life in the chaotic aftermath. Eva discovers - there is always life after death.
