Event Description

That Fading Scent:
A Seditious Comedy About Women and Aging

Are your pheromones fading? Don’t weep! Come and celebrate the rest of your life.
Be brave and take a dangerous journey to the edge of your 'genital functions!' From ranting about our culture's emphasis on Sexy at Sixty, to exploring the realties of being Snow White's mother, nationally renown storyteller, Judith Black, explores both the dark and riotous edges of menopause.

"This is the thinking woman's version of Menopause: The Musical...Black is a warm and dynamic storyteller,......Smart and undeniably funny, That Fading Scent... is a great example of the power of storytelling." Orlando Sentinel

“Seriously funny” The Providence Journal

"Judith Black's "The Fading Scent" is by turns, fearless, funny, poetically engaging and certainly willing to look the crone behind the mother behind the virgin in the eye and tell it like it is." NSN Fringe Festival Producer Loren Niemi
