100 Fucking Days

Carrie McLean

100 Fucking Days is a heavy metal cabaret/burlesque-style theatre show about Cate, a forty-something single Mum of five, who makes a pact with herself to masturbate for 100 days straight.

Cate, while dealing with divorce, and parenting five children, comes to realise she has almost never paddled her own pink canoe. Her one-hundred-day masturbating pact takes her on an odyssey of self-loathing, self-love, alcohol and loud music. The inner heavy metal goddess is unleashed in a fantasy world of crunchy guitars, jazz hands and fiddly fingers.

Cate unpacks repressed fantasies, overcomes the monotony of sex with the same person, unpicks a trauma-triggering-tapestry, and fears the fact she only ever buys vanilla ice cream. She delights in her “whisper-quiet” vibrator… until it sounds like a meat grinder whenever her children are asleep.

Masturbation can be joyous, political, shameful, awkward, hilarious, horrific, defiant and bloody beautiful. 100 Fucking Days will explore all these shades.
