Mimi at The 44th Parallel by David James Parr is a Semifinalist in the 2019 Austin Film Festival & Playwriting Competition!

From the judges: "'Mimi at the 44th Parallel' is a whirlwind from start to finish. Tight dialogue combined with great energy. The title draws us in, and the story keeps us engaged from start to finish. Absolutely lovely work."

Nothing is quite as it seems at The 44th Parallel Lounge in remote Ontario where aspiring pianist Jimmy goes in search of his missing father and falls hard for bartender Mimi - who may just hold the key to all of their destinies. Mimi at The 44th Parallel is a contemporary romantic comedy tinged with sci-fi about first loves and second chances.

SLAP & TICKLE

by DAVID PARR
SOUTH FLORIDA PREMIERE

 

MAY 16 – JUNE 9, 2019

 

“Slap & Tickle” by David Parr is a generational portrait about how drugs, politics and HIV have changed the landscape for gay men in America from the early 1980’s to the early 2000’s. Set in a contemporary bathhouse and told through the kaleidoscopic view of 26 characters, many of them recurring, the stories told range from first kisses to last loves; from station wagons to saunas; from sleeping bag seductions to bathroom rapes. What emerges is a universal play not just about sex, but about the intimacy and urgency of storytelling itself.

 

WARNING: THIS PLAY CONTAINS MALE NUDITY!

Price: $22.50 – $35.00
