Prolonged Eye Contact
Prolonged Eye Contact is a an interactive solo show by comedian Kristen Studard about the search for love, connection, and approval by one performer with one audience. Kristen would like to be loved by you, monogamously. (She's a one-audience type of gal.) What happens when someone won't break eye contact? Uh oh, shit just got real. Through a series of characters, a game show, and an erotic encounter with a bee, Kristen woos you by opening her heart and her eyes and looking right into your soul. Are you ready to be seen?
