In A Round-Heeled Woman, Jane Juska is a 66-year old divorced schoolteacher who hasn't had sex in 30-odd years and thinks it's about time to get some nooky. So she puts out an ad in the New York Review of Books that gets straight to the point: "Before I turn 67 -- next March -- I would like to have a lot of sex with a man I like. If you want to talk first, Trollope works for me."
She gets proposals from all over the country and from men of all ages
("Have Viagra, will travel," one particular letter succinctly reads).
And just like that, a woman who hasn't been intimate with a man in
decades suddenly finds herself drowning in countless proposals and boner
But this is more than just a tale of a MILF looking to get laid with a random stranger. It's also a touching story of an independent-minded woman endeavoring to regain her sexual mojo while wrestling with personal demons and trying to capture the harmony and joy that has eluded her for most of her life. Based on a true story, and written for the stage and directed by Jane Prowse, A Round-Heeled Woman explores the soul of a woman who finds herself on a sexual quest, and ultimately ends up finding herself.
