Penny Arcade at Arcola Tent - 27 June to 22 July 2012
Penny Arcade Bitch! Dyke! Faghag! Whore!, in Arcola Tent at Arcola Theatre, east London, from 27 June to 22 July 2012.
Created, written and performed by Penny Arcade. Co-directed with Steve Zehentner. Produced by Jeremy Goldstein.
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."
