What producers say:
Phone Whore is that rare bird - a show that challenges audiences a long way beyond their limits, while keeping them feeling safe and engaged. The show is structured around four calls; audiences develop what feels like a personal relationship with the performer through the first three, which gives Cameryn the trust she needs to go to an extremely dark place in the fourth. This is then backed up by an open and frank after-show Q&A, which nurses audiences through the dark end of the show to the extent that I will be sending my Mum to see it.

Cameryn Moore is a singular performer and creative. Her dedication, energy, and all round engagement with the world allows her to produce work to an extraordinarily high level and gifts the audience with an artist that is accessible in performance and in person. Her warmth and humour, her constant openness, are breathtaking to see on stage and a pleasure to work with through-out the production process. Her work encompasses our condition, with all the light and darkness that is held within it. As a creative, Cameryn understands her production, works hard to generate audiences, and brings in those audiences that are right for her show. The honesty with which she promotes and connects to the public is astounding, ensuring a tremendous theatre experience for all involved, whether that is as a spectator or as her grateful venue.
John-David Henshaw, producer, Sweet Venues, Edinburgh Festival Fringe, UK
... Moore’s generous and non-judgmental attitude towards all aspects of sexuality created an environment where we could discuss radical sexuality and taboo topics in a safe space. As sex educators, we make it our mission to engage with all sexuality, as opposed to whatever we consider “acceptable.” For many of the people at UTSEC, Moore’s production served to enhance that message and reaffirm our goal of making our space one that is open-minded and welcoming to people from all walks of life. As the 2012-2013 UTSEC Executive Committee, we highly recommend Cameryn Moore as an entertainer and educator for all sex-positive events. Her perspective is truly unique and we believe that working with her will truly enrich your community.

ABOUT THE SHOWS
My shows are all solo shows, which means that they are easy to bring in, and they are strongly text-based, which means they are easy to tech. I prefer to work in intimate spaces (30-60 seats) equipped with basic theatre tech (full stage wash with a few specials, sound ready for either CD or digital files), but I have performed everywhere from private living rooms to bookstores to 135-seat traditional theatres.

The Pretty One
a six-character solo play about sex
After three years of sparking conversations across North America while touring her raw, autobiographical works, Cameryn turned her scrutiny on others to create a multi-character gallery of mini-plays that is both delicate and daring in its exploration of sexuality and the human spirit. Inspired by the lives that intersect with hers, Cameryn lays bare the liberation and heartbreak that co-exist in the souls of us all. She partnered with award-winning director Tanner Harvey in this bold break from her previous works, with generous support from MainLine Theatre and MainLine’s director Amy Blackmore.
where erotica and storytelling collide
You know what a poetry slam is, and maybe you know about story slams, too. Now you can experience a SMUT SLAM, a community storytelling open mic based on real life, real lust, real sex.
SMUT SLAMMERS sign up on the night to tell a 5-minute piece of smut/sex/erotica, based on their real lives and ideally relating to the designated theme, and a lucky eight to ten names will be drawn at random. There will be a team of 3 to 5 judges - interested amateurs, storytellers, theater people, writers, and anyone who loves sex stories. Cameryn works with local co-hosts and judges to give each slam a true local flavor.
NOT A SMUT SLAMMER? Don't worry. The audience is always in for a good time at SMUT SLAM! Sit back and enjoy. All we ask is:
- No interrupting. - No heckling. - No necking in the front row.
