Erotic fiction writer Pamela DeMenthe will be launching her latest book ‘eVULVAlution’ at The Lowry on Thu 4 – Fri 5 April.
‘eVULVAlution’ is a time travelling prehistoric novel set in Hull and follows on from Pamela DeMenthe’s previous success with ‘Sticky Digits.’
As part of the launch, the self-published writer will talk about her struggle living up to high expectations and overcoming writers block.
Pamela DeMenthe is the comedy alter-ego of Manchester based actor Jenny May Morgan who is currently a ‘Developed With Artist’ as part of The Lowry’s Artist Development Programme.
Jenny studied at The Arden school of Theatre and presented her first work under the alter-ego, ‘Sticky Digits,’ at Edinburgh Fringe 2017, returning in 2018 to receive 5 star reviews and to be selected as The Times best of the fringe.
Jenny May Morgan said; “I used to work as a voice actor for audio books, some of which were pretty terrible (hilariously so). This sparked an idea. I started writing spoof erotic fiction and committed every literary crime I could think of. I was performing this material regularly and found audiences got the trope pretty quickly.
“I initially performed as myself, but slowly the character of Pamela DeMenthe, the disillusioned self-published erotica author, emerged.”
In 2019 The Lowry celebrates ten years of its Artist Development Programme supported by Arts Council England, the Eranda Rothschild Foundation and The Garrick Club Charitable Trust. Jenny May Morgan is a ‘Developed With Artist’ and is the recipient of a yearlong, bespoke package of support.
Dates: Thu 4 – Fri 5 April.
