A LESBIAN’S GUIDE TO SELF CARE! is a comedic, feminist, crystal laden, bath house soaked, astrologically drunken hero-journey. In Kat Marie Yoas’ latest one-woman show, she finds the road to wellness is under construction and bumpy at best. She is a Midwestern working class lady who believes she is clueless and seeks to find herself in the uncharted landscape of San Francisco woo. She travels from seeking psychic dating services to healing grief with a massage to a tarot wielding cabaret singer to the perils of simply being a wild woman in the world. All the while she ventures deep, using absurd humor to light the way to find a place for all of us – of connection in a world which is increasingly plugged in and disconnected.
