Welcome to the official site for A Round-Heeled Woman: The Play, starring multi award-winning actress Sharon Gless. Jane Prowse's stage adaptation is based on Jane Juska's book A Round-Heeled Woman: My Late-Life Adventures in Sex and Romance.
On 14 January 2012, the play finished its run at the Aldwych Theatre in London's West End. The next production of the play will be announced shortly.
Jane Juska placed an ad in The New York Review of Books which said "Before I turn 67 – next March – I would like to have a lot of sex with a man I like. If you want to talk first, Trollope works for me". She received 63 replies, from men aged between 32 and 84. A Round-Heeled Woman tells the real-life adventures of some of the encounters which resulted. Jane's courageous journey takes her through falling in love, some heartbreak, rejection and humiliation, a lot of laughs, and her first orgasm with a man after 30 years. The play deals with the universally engaging themes of love, loss, personal empowerment, and the wisdom which comes with the passing years. And yes... sex.
