Penny Arcade -
Bitch! Dyke! Faghag! Whore!, which ended a 3 and a half week run at the Arcola Theatre, east London on 22 July, will transfer to the Old Vic Tunnels, in Waterloo, central London, from 8 Aug to 1 Sep 2012.
It is created, written and performed by Penny Arcade.
Co-directed with Steve Zehentner. Produced by Jeremy Goldstein, Time Out Live and The Old Vic Tunnels
A freedom of speech anthem: part nightclub, part theatre event, and part political provocation, with an erotic twist.
"A multi-media spectacle that re-creates the atmosphere of a club in a theatre setting. Blending outrageous humour, and razor sharp satire with an exuberant audience dance break, monologues performed by Penny Arcade are punctuated with male and female erotic go-go dancing. Arcade’s infamous monologues feature the daily life of a receptionist in a brothel, the upbringing and rearing of a ‘faghag’, the evolution of the New York gay scene, and the heartbreak of HIV and AIDS."
