Dirtbag

The Public House Theater
Chicago, Illinois (IL)

Some teens are growing up too fast. Some adults haven’t grown up at all. “Dirtbag” follows those kids and adults, from asthmatic Larry, who wants nothing more than to score the winning basket, to Kevin, who wants nothing more than for people to stop asking what he’s done since college. While youngster Kathy struggles to understand her friends’ attempts at innuendo, grown-up Mia searches for the words to say to her coworker on the morning-after. If you’ve ever had your immaturity immortalized on the internet, or felt like working in a cubicle was just a painful extension of High School, you too might be a “Dirtbag.”

“Titus Andronicus” is not William Shakespeare’s most popular play, but when it is mounted, it makes a powerful statement. The story is a simple and grotesque portrait of the perversions of power, revenge and the consequences of our primal fear of “The Other.” A legendary general takes a foreign queen captive, slaughters her oldest son, and sets off a chain of events which sees his own daughter violated and disfigured, and the Queen’s remaining, offending sons baked into a pie.

Over the course of the parody of E.L. James’ “Fifty Shades of Grey,” Sandy invites the audience into her most private fantasies and public discoveries as she tries to get to the heart of Thomas Plaid, and most importantly, herself
