Overview

O Solo Homo is a diverse, definitive, and hugely entertaining collection representing the cutting edge of queer solo performance. The pieces in O Solo Homo touch nerves that run deep — from sex, politics, community, and health to the struggles and joys of family, friends, and lovers. Peggy Shaw, of Split Britches, revisits how she learned to be butch. The late Ron Vawter, of the Wooster Group, juxtaposes the lives of two very different men who died of AIDS: diva filmmaker Jack Smith and Nixon crony Roy Cohn. Tim Miller, one of the NEA Four, surveys the landscape of gay desire before and after the advent of AIDS. And Carmelita Tropicana, the “National Songbird of Cuba,” makes an unforgettable, hilarious return to Havana.

What People are Saying About This

Kate Clinton
This collection is a joyous public service -- like those Irish monks who preserved previously evanescent performance works. And it beats Beowulf.
Anthony Rapp
It's hard to believe that some of the fearless and gifted writer-performers represented in this anthology had to defend their very right to bear witness to their lives, but we should all be glad they persevered....Their tales are hilarious, moving, thrilling.
