How To Be A Lesbian in 10 Days or Less is a
hilarious coming out story for queers and non-queers alike. Motivational
speaker and expert lesbian Butchy McDyke deftly guides her captive
audience in an exploration of self-discovery and first love, coming out,
lesbian sex, queer politics, and a really important Reba McEntire song
as they learn to confidently shout, “I’m a big ‘ol dyke!” Writer and
performer Leigh Hendrix weaves a story that is one part instructional
seminar, one part personal story, and one part wacky performance art.
At turns funny and poignant, silly and earnest, How To Be A Lesbian in 10 Days or Less is the perfect guide to gay for budding lesbians, no matter their sexual orientation!
Leigh Hendrix is a theatre artist first introduced to performance, like many dramatically inclined girls and boys in South Carolina, through dance recitals and church musicals. Now based in Providence, RI, Leigh creates comedic and (sometimes too) personal solo performances and makes theatre as an actor, writer, and improviser with other artists of all shapes and sizes. Her solo performance piece How To Be A Lesbian in 10 Days or Less was developed at Emerson College and as a resident artist at Providence’s Perishable Theatre, receiving its regional premier at WAM Theatre’s O Solo Mama Mia Festival in the Berkshires. Leigh is also a founding member of the improv team The Trumans.

sincerity. Writer and performer Leigh Hendrix moves between characters
