Directed by David Schweizer
Starring: Marga Gomez, Carmelita Tropicana, Murray Hill (on video)
Single Wet Female combines film-noir satire with goofball socio-sexual
performance. It is a spoof of the film cult classic Single White Female.
Marga Gomez plays Margaret, a high femme Caucasian in a blonde wig,
and Carmelita is Cammy, the uber butch who awakens her desire for
plantains and merengue. The play includes video with drag king Murray Hill
in the role of the boyfriend.
Presented at Performance Space 122, Throws Like a Girl Festival, Austin (2005) National Queer Arts Festival, S.F. (2002)
Nominated for GLAAD Award
“Marga Gomez and Carmelita Tropicana are formidable
talents…they have goofy rapport…the show grapples with broad themes..in
a sly self confident way.” Time Out NY
