West Coast Premiere
THE PLAY ABOUT THE NAKED GUY
by David Bell
Impact Theatre, Berkeley, CA (2010)
The Integrity Players is a theatre company so committed to its mission to produce little-known classics that it’s on the verge of having to shut down permanently. Svengali producer Eddie, fresh off his boffo hit Naked Boys Running Around Naked, needs a venue for his next low-brow entertainment featuring Kit Swagger, the legendary gay-porn star. Sensing blood in the water, Eddie makes the company an offer it may not be able to refuse.
