Comic storyteller Cindy Pierce is on a mission, and she’s not just looking for laughs. She’s wants to bring truth to the complicated world of sex, relationships and human behavior.
Her new one-woman show, Comfort in the Stumble, is a collection of stories revolving around resilience and finding one's way in a complicated sexual world. Pierce, who lives in Etna, N.H., also speaks to students and parents at college campuses around the country.
Pierce believes that social media and the Internet have complicated attitudes toward sex and human behavior, and that the mythic "drunken hook-up culture" has created a confused generation.
Her solo show is more of a comedic tour through her own experiences, and her journey to mastering what she calls "shame resilience".
