Penny Arcade: The Faghag and Her Friends in The Summer of Love
The latest offering from veteran playwright/performer Penny Arcade, at the peak of her powers, features Arcade's spot-on impersonations and intoxicating improvisational style, “stiletto wit…blistering” – The New York Times. Together with longtime collaborator Steve Zehentner, they move into new territory embedding a narrative play into a filmic abstract that travels from 1967 Provincetown to the cafes and night clubs of New York City’s celebrated demimonde, where tragedy and transformation walked hand in hand and created a breeding ground for revolutionary thinking and artistic innovation.
"When I was 15, 16... my goal every night was to sit at the table with the old queens, a difficult invitation to get for a teenage girl…The old queens knew everything I wanted to know …They did not tolerate banality nor mediocrity and theirs was a fierce and unapologetic intelligence. Just sitting at that table in a dark bar or fluorescent coffee shop, lifted your IQ twenty points!”
