A one-night-stand becomes a lifetime commitment through some fairy dragmother magic.
SYNOPSIS: At 35, Piper had decided to give up on love and procreation. His family dies stupid young after all. When a one-night-stand leaves him with a random pair of Andrew Christian underwear, Piper does the logical thing and sews the abandoned briefs into a puppet. A magical fairy godmother drag queen brings this puppet to life, and Piper is left to raise his puppet child Andrew alone.
WHY THIS PLAY: This is a queer, Pinocchio-inspired take on the single parent narrative. Let’s be real: do this play because drag queens and puppets are awesome.
This was developed at Hyde Park Theatre in Austin, Texas.
