About Inexcusable Fantasies (GrrlParts.com):
“Martha Stewart, motorcycles, and Grandma’s Oil of Olay jar. What do they have in common? They are just a few of the often hilarious obsessions Susan McCully visits in Inexcusable Fantasies a show about sexual politics, lust ‘over forty, cloning, eye replacement surgery, and the unmistakably erotic powers of Martha Stewart’s marzipan.”
The production, starring Susan McCully and Rachel Hirshorn ’04, theatre, has been performed at a number of venues, including the Prague Film Festival in 2012, the Strand Theatre Company this year and various other international festivals since 2004. It’s been considered by critics as a comedy with incredible “subtlety”, “intelligence” and “verve,” and that “what makes the script so poignantly hysterical is the idea that the obsessions, the irrational emotions, the painful awkwardness—while hugely hyperbolic—speak to experiences we’ve all shared.”
