A hilariously penetrating look at queer sex for straight folks, complete with sing-a-longs, how-to's, romance, puppets and soul-baring striptease. Created by John Leo and Sophie Nimmannit, this beginner's guide - stuffed with toys and songs - goes off-script with a lover's quarrel that tickles qualms, exposes scruples, liberates desire and comes to a climax where everyone gets off!
Developed with help from an early run at Dixon Place's famed living room on the Bowery, Peg-ass-us was rated "Best Comedy" at the 2008 San Francisco Fringe Festival. It has appeared at the Montreal Fringe Festival, the Brick Theater (Brooklyn), Brown University, Bard College (hosted by the Queer-Straight Alliance) and returned to Dixon Place as Artists-in-Residence in October 2009. In February 2010, Peg-ass-us went on tour to Juneau (AK), Seattle and Portland, to perform in front of surprised and enthusiastic audiences!
- perhaps the silliest, most heartfelt, romantic comedy about anal sex imaginable!
"...a sweet, insightful, very honest performance about a topic that even I, the experienced sexual outlaw, still have a slight pause talking about in public... bust a gut, laugh out loud funny."
- Monk, of TwistedMonk.com
"...bursts all over the stage with vulgar sexual inquiries and spits out cute and delightful songs about a**-fucking and mythical creatures."
