NOT GETTING IT by Anne Marie Scheffler (Not So Norma). See listings, this page.What's a single woman gonna do when the itch gets strong? The sexual itch, that is. Carrie and the girls on Sex And The City have their ways to scratch. So does Bridget Jones.
Now Anne Marie Scheffler offers her own thoughts in Not Getting It, about an unattached 30-something who wants some action but isn't sure she should go for it.
"The show explores the single woman's need to get laid," offers Scheffler, "as well as the question of how long can you go without having sex -- and how healthy that is. Can we follow our libidos, like the men we're supposed to be avoiding?
"Society tells single women to be sexually attractive, but does it allow us to be sexually active, too?"
Not Getting It is Scheffler's most personal show to date. She's best known for solo shows about Norma Green, the Hockley Hills Potato Queen, who left small-town life to find love and success in the big city. Infusing the fictional Norma with comic charm and emotional truth, Scheffler won over Canadian audiences.
She expects that the harder truths of Not Getting It will still attract viewers, in part because of the packaging.
"As a middle child and a Leo -- and a performer with a clown background -- I'm all for entertaining."
