Cameryn Moore in PHONE WHORE
a one-act play with frequent interruptions
"Hey, there. ...I'm doing real well, how're you doing? ....Yeah? I think I can help you with that. ...Well, hang out with me for an hour and I will rock your f**king world."
...[It's] the most intimate and insightful theatre experience you're likely to have, in more ways than one.
I haven't been shaken by a piece of theatre like this for quite a while. (audience member, Ottawa Fringe 2010)
... a one-woman monologue, a running confessional, a series of anecdotes that add up to a powerful whole.

Phone Whore will play at the Backyard Ballroom on Friday and Saturday, October 15-16, as part of a 17-city tour this summer and fall. Doors open at 7:15pm both nights, with post-show Q&A sessions with the artist. Tickets are $12/advance, $15 at the door, with advance tickets available online at www.backyardballroom.com.
A slice-of-life comedy/drama, Phone Whore invites audiences in for an unflinching look at taboo, fantasy, and the place of "deviant" desires in society today. Playwright and performer CAMERYN MOORE wrote the play during downtime between calls, and drew extensively on her work experiences at a no-taboo company to flesh out both the absurdities and difficult truths that pervade the world of phone sex. Truth and taboo collide in this intimate, one-hour visit with a phone sex operator. Listen closely: she may change your views on sex forever.
The Phone Whore 2010 North American tour is a fiscally sponsored project of the International Sex Workers Foundation for Arts, Culture, and Education, a 501(c)(3) non-profit, tax-exempt organization.
