Written for Working Man's Clothes' spring production, FuckPlays, my ten-minute play, Sharpen My Dick, has found another life in another fucktastic production.
For the past 14 years, a scrappy theatre in Wilmington, Delaware has lived by these rules:
"City Theater Company is committed to ridding the planet of complacency, redundancy, indifference, and fear-- thereby clearing the way for fun, electricty, cool art and some major chutzpah. We seek out what makes us most afraid and then attack it with an odd, supernatural fury. We breathe in and out in time with our audience, and the resulting electrical charge produces theatrical shock waves that deman attention.
The folks here believe theatre should be filled with big energy, big ideas, big fun, and other big stuff we haven't even thought of yet. Meanwhile, we burn bridges and bite bullets. We pound the pavement, shoot the moon, damn the torpedos, and laugh 'til it hurts.
We do stuff that rocks, and we have one hell of a time."
Now THAT is a mission statement that I can stand behind and I'm happy as hell to be rockin' with them.
Our project together, Sex Plays, goes up (one night only!) on October 13th, 2007.
