DSR Productions/RibbitRePublic 
Vancouver, Canada 
Playwright: John Godber 
This hilarious play takes place in a provincial discotheque in the 1980s. Four tuxedoed male bouncers (who also “become” a variety of other characters) perform at a nonstop pace, from one irreverent bit of action and impersonation to another with virtuosic ease. Explosively funny and devastatingly satiric.

Combining the wit of Barry Humphries’ Dame Edna, the sauciness of Brendan O’Carroll’s Mrs. Brown, and the devilish antics of shock rocker Marilyn Manson, J.P.

Raïna von Waldenburg 
Meet Linda Kunt (a drunken social worker), Little Nazi (a baby with a big dong), and Smoker (who invited her?). These and many others live in my head. I know, freaky. But your psyche can explode when your own grandpa sexually abuses you. Hey, I’m Marlene. This is a true story with 12 twats and a harp.
