Slut

 

The Accidental Slut

Matilda McHartle never considered herself a sl-, well someone who wasn’t just a nice girl until she was arrested for running a brothel. Now she has to prove her innocence to everyone, including a sexually repressed – but rather attractive – police detective and to the old lady who lives next door to her.

A one woman comedy written by Brenda McFarlane with the help of performer Heidi Weeks

Matilda McHartle would describe herself as a perfectly ordinary person and her behavior as completely normal for a single woman in her thirties. She’d admit to being a little quirky for an accountant but she’d never guess what other people might call her if they knew the details of her sex life… that is until she is arrested for running a brothel and taken downtown for formal questioning.

Slut recieves 4 stars from Time Out New York“Slut à la Carte” is the solo tale of Matilda (Heidi Weeks), a woman who gives of herself so freely that she is mistakenly arrested for running a brothel. When forced to confront her philandering, Matilda runs a gamut of emotions: joy, regret, remorse, anger, love and despair. Written and directed by Brenda McFarlane, “Slut” deals with the typical social stigmas surrounding love and sex: uninhibited women are sluts, women can’t have sex without falling in love, men don’t get attached, etc. But Weeks portrays Matilda with sympathy and humor, taking us deep within her psyche, and the show conveys two important lessons: Be comfortable with who you are, and be willing to compromise every now and again. This is a witty, fast-paced ride; just don’t expect it to change the way men and women approach relationships.- Time Out New York
