Joy Green’s final production to be staged by family
Joy Green’s final production to be staged by family in her memory
November will see Mistress Dominique take over The Dark Room and bring the audience into her world of leather, whips and flogging.
The evening opens at Mistress Dominque’s Dark Room, a state-of-the-art, fully equipped BDSM dungeon somewhere in the heart of suburban New Zealand, when Mistress Dominique finds herself faced with an unscheduled and intimidatingly large tour party - her audience.
Only momentarily putt of her stride (or perhaps, in this case, we should say stroke), the self-described teenage dominatrix engages this group in an hour of frank conversation. Over the course of the session she outlines the services she has available to accomodate the needs of the discerning submissive, discusses her philosophical understanding of sex, fantasy, and human needs, shares some of the things that led her to her current career and lets the group in on her own personal doughnut theory of the universe.
Written by renowned Kiwi playwright Fiona Samuel, Lashings of Whipped Cream was originally directed and produced by local thespian favourite Joy Green, who sadly passed away during the rehearsal period. Since then, it has been decided that daughter Megan Green will take the reigns and the show will go on, now in memory of Joy.
“Joy Green was a stalwart of Palmerston North’s arts scene, and her passing sent shockwaves through the community,” says The Dark Room venue manager Nathan Mudge. “This is an opportunity for us all to come together and remember fondly the contribution she made to our city.”
The one-woman play, which sees Madam Brie Shaw and Madam Sapphira Raven alternate performances, plays from 5-7 November for four performances only.
