At this year’s Hollywood Fringe Festival, take an immersive, musical theatre burlesque journey through the swirling head of “William Sexspeare” and discover all the mishaps that never made ink on paper.
“William Sexspeare” stumbles, heavily inebriated, through the woods into The Knock Shop, a dilapidated yet musical whorehouse where he picks an evening companion who promises to inspire creativity. It’s an easy pick as he is experiencing a terrible case of writer’s block. He falls asleep, has an orgy (albeit this part a bit blurry), and is at some point drugged. Any which way, his whore/Jiminy Cricket, “F*ck”, is now calling him King Queer and introducing him to his three daughters, “Lady Macbreast”, “Juliewet” and “Beabitch”. It would seem before Shakes wrote the plays we know today; the characters were dreadfully mixed and matched inside his brain. Unbeknownst to you, each character you loved, feared, or hadn’t met yet, once resided in “The Knock Shop-upon-Avon”…or did they? Will “Sexspeare” ever write again? Who is “Ham-on-Rye”? How did “Shakeslesque Hill” survive “Tightass Androgynous”? All this and more can be answered by getting your tush in a glitter covered seat…NOW!
