SERVICE QUEEN by Meaghan Robichaud – April 26 & 27

Based on everyone’s favorite TV show about luxury yachting, SERVICE QUEEN scuba dives deep deep deep into the psychosis of being on the salty seven seas—an aquatic fantasia featuring coked-out “nepo” babies, high-IQ octopi, and merpussy masturbation. Spread your legs and get ready to set sail. Ahoy matey!

POPPER by Ryan Howzell & Kara Hadden – April 26 & 27

Kara is a scientist who has just made a field-shaking discovery. Ryan is a labor organizer fulfilling a decade-old sexual fantasy. Both believe in outing celebrities. Neither is pro-gun. A stage reimagining of the landmark news show DykeTV, POPPER follows two dykes’ quest — through interviews, the scientific method, and lots of explosions — to ensure that love *really* wins.
