Dirty Barbie and Other Girlhood Tales is a one-woman storytelling show written and performed by Denise Stewart, puts the “fun” back in “dysfunctional” while spinning tales about scarlet fever, scotch over ice, and girls gone wild. Stewart takes the audience on an unforgettable ride through the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s. A coming-of-age story that redefines what it means to be an all-American girl. Rated PG-16.

About the Show

In 1978, a mother, newly widowed, moved herself and her four children from the wide open spaces of Wyoming to a tiny town in North Carolina. Misbehaving ensued. Over thirty years later, DeeDee Stewart began writing about her childhood – and her MOTHER.

Putting the “fun” back in “dysfunctional”, spinning tales on scarlet fever, scotch over ice and girls gone wild, DeeDee Stewart takes the audience on an unforgettable ride through the 70s, 80s and 90s. A coming-of-age story that redefines what it means to be an all-American girl.

Using photos, dance, music and considerable comedic skill, DeeDee Stewart moves back and forth through stories such as “How Southern Women Saved My Life”, “Dirty Barbie” and “Confessions of a Mean Girl” to scenes such as a tour through her spooky childhood home and the unusual way that she won the Pep Club candy contest.

This is a very physical show. Originating from three blog posts, the show is 60 minutes long and brings together the strengths of this playwright, actress and storyteller into an honest, original and universal tale of girlhood.
