Confessions Scroller

"Between-the-sheets tales that run the gamut from poignant and heartbreaking to hysterical and in-your-face shocking"

—Austin Monthly Magazine

BedPost Confessions features performances about sex, sexuality, and gender. Each show has something for everyone - from humor and wit to thought-provoking wisdom - while offering new ways of looking at sex and relationships.

The highlight of each show is the anonymous confessions from the audience: this is your chance to share your own secrets, wishes, and regrets and to hear them read by the producers.

Next Show :

(un)Spoken features stories that, though difficult to tell, offer redemption and emotional justice for the storyteller. From birth to death and everything in between - aging, illness, addiction, and rejection - no topic is off limits for the performers' humor, poignancy, and, above all, honesty.  

Audience members have a chance to share their own secrets, wishes and regrets in the form of anonymous confessions, which are read aloud during the show.

Next Show :

"This is a church. Here we worship humanity, passion, and sexuality in any of its myriad forms."

The Podcast

Selected from the live shows BedPost Confessions and (un)Spoken, each podcast features one storyteller bookended with anonymous confessions from the audience that were read (and often commented upon) during the evening. All BedPost Productions are made accessible to deaf audience members by the fantastic interpreters from SOULumination. Though the interpreters are there to serve the deaf, they enthrall the entire audience with the beautiful expressiveness of American Sign Language. If you hear a roar of laughter and don't understand why, the interpreter may have stolen the show for a minute. 

Listen to all the episodes.

"Austin has it all, and Bedpost Confessions brings it all together for a funny and educational night about sex, sensuality, and human nature."
