Pussy on the House
Hell in a Handbag Productions is proud to kick off their season with a tale so big there's barely room to contain it's bubbling melodrama. A tale of dark desires; of greed and avarice; of longing and lesbians; all set in the hot and steamy South.

Ryan Landry's Pussy on the House takes Cat on a Hot Tin Roof and turns it into an even bigger potboiler- full of languid melodrama, gut busting laughter, and oh so bitter truths that made the original a classic of epic proportions.

Meet Brick Pollup (Eric Lindahl), the tragic ex-TV star and his gorgeous, sexually frustrated wife, Maggie (Jeremy Myers) as they battle it out on the roof of the Pollup mansion where Brick has retreated to avoid facing the hard truths of his life. Maggie has dragged the bed up to the roof in a desperate struggle to win the attention of her husband. See Maggie battle Mae (David Cerda), her determined (and very fertile) harpy of a sister-in-law for their rightful place in the Pollup family legacy led by Big Mama Pollup (Honey West), the 'richest, butchest lesbian in six counties who built the biggest polyester plantation the South has ever seen'.  When it looks like Big Mama is dying the struggle begins to see who will inherit the Pollup polyester dynasty. Brick is Big Mama's favorite, but her natural son, Gooper (Christopher Carpenter), an estranged Elvis impersonator, thinks differently; especially since the union of Big Mama and her lesbian lover, Sukie (Ed Jones) is not legal, or 'normal' in the eyes of proper society.
