My friend Jacquetta Szathmari is putting on the Festival of the Offensive. I sent her the most offensive play I ever wrote, a short piece called Puff Puff, where two women pick apart their fellow female co-worker, after she’s been brutally attacked.
She already knew the piece, from when we’d performed it at Sticky in January 2013, and had said at the time that it was “ballsy… it was like you just rolled a big ol’ scrotum right in here.”
A play; presented as part of the Festival of the Offensive in April 2014, The Producer’s Club, NYC.
Written by Libby Emmons
Dramaturgy by Brad Rothbart
Directed by Michael Domitrovich
Starring Libby Emmons & Ali Ayala
Here’s a review/thoughts from Leta Tremblay at Indie Theater Now.
Can you f*ck your way to the top in a gender neutral world, or do you only get f*cked on the bottom? Libby & Ali play co-workers in 5 short, offensive scenes. Originally premiering in pop-up Sticky in January 2013, the most offensive play in Sticky history, Libby Emmons’ Puff Puff, was began as a little comedy about gang-rape, but this time around Libby and Ali have decided to tackle more taboo topics. If it makes us cringe, if it makes us uneasy, if it makes our moral foundation crumble to bits, we’ll talk about it. Not safe for work, not for the faint of heart.
