WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Made up of her signature story-driven standup and scored by sensual homemade pop, Erin Markey: Boner Killer is an intimate musical conversation between what Markey thinks she can't have and how she'd have it if she could. Driven by Whitney Houston's lesbian mythologies, Europe™, and a Pretty Woman accident, Markey sacrifices her own life to transform personal humiliations into naked feminist hope. She is accompanied by a small music outfit and directed by Ellie Heyman.

Erin Markey makes music, shows, and videos. She has shown work at the New Museum, PS122, New York City Comedy Festival, Ars Nova, Lincoln Center Director's Lab, UCBeast, Bard Spiegeltent, Tasmania's Festival of Voices, and the San Francisco Film Society. She is the recipient of a 2014 Franklin Furnace Grant, the 2013 Eliot Norton Award for Outstanding Performance, and the 2012 NYFA Cutting Edge Artist Award. She is a company member of Obie Award-winning Half Straddle. Her most recent work, A Ride on the Irish Cream (co-composed with Emily Bate and Kenny Mellman), will tour to A.R.T. (Boston), PhillyFringe (Philadelphia), and the OnEdge Festival (Chicago) in February and March of 2017.
