Bootycandy: Sexy, Subversive New Play from Robert O'Hara

The Wilma Theater (http://www.goldstar.com/venues/philadelphia-pa/the-wilma-theater), Broad & Spruce Streets (265 S. Broad Street Philadelphia, PA 19107 (http://www.goldstar.com/venues/philadelphia-pa/the-wilma-theater#venue_map))

The Wilma Theater brings Bootycandy, the hilarious and subversive new play by acclaimed writer Robert O'Hara (Insurrection, Antebellum), to Philadelphia. Inspired by vaudeville, O'Hara takes a kaleidoscopic view of sex, racial stereotypes and the overarching desire for connection.

In this engrossing series of interconnected sketches, you'll meet a wide cast of memorable characters, all drawn with O'Hara's eye for the outrageous and the poignant. There's the fire-and-brimstone preacher who shocks his congregation, a young boy with a penchant for the novels of Jackie Collins, two lesbians on a deserted island and many others. Winner of an Obie Award, a Helen Hayes Award and the NAACP Best Director Award, O'Hara directs this Philadelphia premiere himself.

The piece, which is 10 mini-plays that explore the language of sex and identity, borrows here and there from the real life of O’Hara, 41, a black gay man who grew up in Cincinnati. Dirty jokes and our general discomfort with talking about sex are among the themes of “Bootycandy”. O’Hara delves into serious issues in “Bootycandy” — homophobia, sexism, racism — but unlike his other works on those subjects, this play is a comedy. His aim is to create “an event that allows you the freedom to laugh at subjects that are not laugh-worthy.”
