IN RESIDENCE: April 9 – 15, 2024

Hey Legends,

Oh okay, dreams really do come true.

Shy Girl™ is about to make possibly her first friends ever. And not just any friends. We’re talking legends (people who look cool… tattoos, cigarettes, etc.). The legends are due to arrive at Shy Girl’s apartment in just under an hour and all that’s left to do is remedy the simple fact that she does not know how to talk to other people.

A tenderly innocent and brazenly sensual romp through social anxiety, Wyld Woman follows Shy Girl’s ambitious attempt to open up— emotionally, spiritually, uh… physically— in hopes of expanding her social life beyond the feeble realm of her imaginary friends and finding some sense of real human connection. 

Fri, April 12th at 8pm
Sat, April 13th at 8pm
Sun, April 14th at 3pm
PRICE: $15, $25, and $35
At IRT: 154 Christopher st. NYC #3B (third floor)
ADA Accessible

Following sold out, highly beloved performances in unconventional spaces across the tri-state area (a taqueria basement, a barn in the Hamptons, you get the idea), we can no longer resist the allure of a proscenium. And the timing couldn’t be better… because this coming August, Wyld Woman will be joining the ranks of international legendhood at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival!

‘The show reads as a great triumph over shyness’ and ‘a powerful catharsis for anyone who has ever crossed the street just to avoid someone they know.’ (

Don’t have friends? No problem. This show is 100%-certified Shy Person friendly.

It’s showtime, baby.
