Robert O’hara’s BOOTYCANDY will have it’s New England premiere. The part that Jesse Pennington played in NYC premiere where he showed us his low hangers will be played by TV actor and writer John Kuntz.
MAR 12 – APR 9, 2016
By Robert O’Hara
Directed by Summer L. Williams
Bootycandy is a shockingly funny and saucy spin on race, sex, and sexuality. Based on the author’s own experiences growing up black and gay, the play unfolds in a series of loosely linked vignettes that take no prisoners when confronting racial, sexual, and cultural stereotypes. With outrageous humor and real heart, O’Hara tests how we talk about our bodies at home, in church, and in the theatre.
PLEASE BE ADVISED: This play is called BOOTYCANDY, so they’ll be talking about booty, and showing some booty. That means strong language, mature themes, and full nudity. You’ve been warned.
Play by Robert O’Hara. Directed by Summer L. Williams. Presented by SpeakEasy Stage Company. At the Roberts Studio Theatre, Calderwood Pavilion, Boston Center for the Arts, Through April 9. Tickets: $25-$60, 617-933-8600, http://www.bostontheatrescene.com
