About this show

This play is set in the summer of 1945 when Japan was weeping, the American South was seething and the word Gender was mostly used in grammar class. SALAD OF THE BAD CAFE follows racial, gender and regional stereotypes such as the drunken homosexual, the gender outlaw, the Japanese inventor, the redneck cowboy, the faded southern belle, the geisha and the soldier. These characters and others come together to tell a story of unrequited love. The piece combines poetry, visual humor and dance in an attempt to demystify the Queer, disorient the Orient and demystify the Southern Gothic and the American Grotesque. -rja
