Naked July: Kill Your Boyfriends
The National Pastime Theater and the 5th annual Naked July Festival is proud to welcome "Kill Your Boyfriends", presented by Pride Films and Plays, to the festival this year!

"Kill Your Boyfriends is an innovative, funny and thought provoking show about two couples in a single bed.  Or rather, an old mattress, really.  We watch as the couples, finding each relationship at a moment of strain, try to make it through one more night, each unable to sleep, refusing to rest.  A fever dream of movement and text, the performance combines the words of several writers to voice the panic and obsession that threatens to consume them.  Fear of sex.  Fear of death.  Fear of sleep and the fight against its tranquil oblivion.  You always hurt the one you love.  Or, at the very least, the one who sleeps next to you.  You must kill your boyfriends, poet Alex Dimitrov tells us. You must kill what wants, like death, to keep you.

It is a show rooted in the bedroom, dwelling in the depths of intimacy and acceptance with just a dash of nudity to stimulate your senses!

Choreographed and Arranged by Derek Van Barham

Ensemble: Erik Strebig, James Nedrud, Sarah Goldberg, Karen Vance, Carmen Molina, Christopher Young

Authors: Richard Siken, Alex Dimitrov, Sylvia Plath, Sharon Olds, Thom Gunn, Shakespeare, and Walt Whitman (among others).
