Lauren Weedman BLOWS is a wry, contemporary look at what it means to be a single mom, an artist, and a woman in today's creative economy. It is an exploration of what happens in the invisible second half of a woman's life, the part after all the traditional stories end and divorce, menopause, and impending financial collapse begin, while pursuing a career in the arts and resisting looming pressures to pack it up and get a "real job." It's a search for a Third Act - for survival, honesty, and normalcy in an increasingly isolated, digital society. Seventy-five percent of the show is scripted, and twenty-five percent is discovered during the performance. Every performance will be different.
"It's a show about single mothers, art, bankruptcy, isolation, survival, and dishwashers all blowing the same fuse over and over again in your shit apartment," said Lauren. "Blowing your life. Blowing your dreams. Your mind—you get it. Lots of blows."" (Promo Copy)
