Overview

Fitzgerald was once a twee wallflower. He’s remade his image as a tough, junkie hipster and wants to take his Smiths obsessed, cardigan-wearing friends with him. Fearing resistance, he approaches a surly, Australian pimp, Blixa and hires her "finest bitch" Kylie, to "de-virginize them." He pays for Kylie’s services with bad dope. When a furious Blixa shows up for revenge, what is supposed to be the most special night of Rodney and Stew’s life could very well be their last on earth. Heroin, Morrissey, Nick Drake, Nick Cave, Toto Cuelo, Chinese egg rolls and a baby snatching dingo all figure into this fast, fearless, pitch black sex farce.

Editorial Reviews

Chip Deffaa
Spitz writes with a buoyant irreverence that may evoke rewarding memories at times of playwrights Joe Orton and Charles Busch. And he’s not afraid to address life’s really big questions, such as what is the ideal recording to listen to the first time you have sex?
