I have a one-woman show-The Vagina Odyssey- I've been working on for three years now and I've finally performed it in several venues.

This is is an intimate, provative and hilarious look at living with a vagina in a world that shames all things vagina.
Now that I've performed the show several times I have become deeply aware of the impact this show has on people. Women cry. Men cry. People walk out feeling touched, inspired, and changed.
This is an important story for our times. It's healing for both men and women and for the feminine.
I sumbitted my show to United Solo, a festival that puts on one-person shows on Off Broadway in New York.
This is competive festival as they receive hundreds of submissions from all over the world. There are celebrities who perform in this festival.
The Vagina Odyssey was accepted! I'm going to be on Off Broadway, which is insane given what a new perfomer I am.
To participate in this festival will cost me about $2400 (not including working with my director) and the most I could make in ticket sales is $680.
I am already $8,000 in the hole with this project.
That's why I'm doing a Go Fund Me!
Here is a breakdown of where the money I raise goes:
SEND ME TO OFF BROADWAY!
$1400 Allocated to working with my director
$800 Fees to United Solo
$250 Tech person
$450 Flight to New York
$300 Fliers and advertisment
$200 Miscellaeous (Airport shuttle, etc.)
Any money I make past $4000 will be used to support the production cost of future shows, create promotional videos, and website creation for the show.
Your support would mean the world to me! I know this show has so much power to impact people. Many people have described this show as "theater as medicine".
Here's what a few folks have said about the show:
"This show is WONDERFUL. It's powerful, healing, inspring, adorable, moving and hilarious. And it's not something I know of anyone else who is doing, or doing it in the humble gentle way that Sarah is."
"Amazingly hilarious show of truth, honesty, and insight about a woman's experience in this world. As a father of two daughters, it illuminated so much for me. I feel more aware, empathetic and connected to my daughters after seeing this show
"My mind was blown-open"
"Full house, standing ovation. Of the dozens of Fringe pieces that I've seen over the years, Sarah's Vagina Odyssey exemplifies the best that theater can be. Professional, open, raw, vulnerable, and most of all, completely REAL. For sure. Not. To. Be. Missed."
"This brave, self-reflective monologue illumines our collective ethos and opens pathways to deep healing, all the way through to self-empowerment in service to the whole. Sarah Kennedy's masterful work is true medicine, served with more than a spoonful of hilarity. See this offering. This is important."
"Moving and brilliant"
"One of my top five favorite theater experiences, and I've seen a lot of theater."
