Making its world premiere at Off-Broadway Soho Rep is Snatch Adams & Tainty McCracken Present It's That Time of the Month by Becca Blackwell. The new comedy begins performances October 25, and will run through December 3.
Developed with Jess Barbagallo and Greg Corbino, Barbagallo directs Blackwell and Amanda Duarte in the work.
Presented in association with The Bushwick Starr, the play follows a six-foot tall vagina named Snatch Adams who loses her job as a clown at Planned Parenthood in 2016. Facing unemployment, she finds a job hosting a talk show with comic Tainty McCracken. Using puppets, the queer work celebrates power, autonomy, awareness, and love.
“Snatch Adams & Tainty McCracken will satisfy anyone who goes nuts for excessive fake blood, sequins on anything (or, everything), and exceptional gross-out humor. But it is also deeply subversive. It asks meaningful questions about the body; how we discuss (or don’t) our bodily functions, needs, and desires; and what it means to reject the shame we are taught to have around all of it," said Peponides in a previous statement.
