This hilarious and wild send up of a film-noir detective genre puts the focus on the women in this all-female Baltimore premiere of Holly Hughes’ The Well of Horniness. As director Julianne Franz says, this play is “part soap-opera, part dyke noir, but has an incredible sexiness to it”. This outrageous comedy by playwright, lesbian icon, and Iron Crow Theatre Advisory Board member Holly Hughes is sure to be sexy, funny, and with just the right amount of mania expected of a live-show with a studio audience. Paired with nightly entertainment as one would expect of watching SNL or a late-night talk show, this will be an evening at the theater full of variety and humor, with the focus on Hughes’ play as the headliner. Full of innuendo, sexiness, and a bit of chaos, the play provides homage to the decades of past ranging from 1940s radio shows, 1960s sitcoms, and 1980s pop-culture. The story is that of the hidden world of the Tridelta Tribads, a sinister, Sapphic sorority. When one of their members gets murdered in the powder room of the Vixen’s Den Dinner Theatre, it’s up to Garnet McClit, “lady detective” to solve the case. Please note that The Well of Horniness explores mature and sexually explicit themes, contains adult language and may not be suitable for patrons under the age of 18.
